What is decidim4CS?
It is a digital platform for participatory citizen science. It allows citizen scientists to propose ideas, comment and vote on them. It constitutes the deliberation technology used for the Crowd4SDG project that aims to use citizen science to track progress towards sustainable development goals.
decidim4CS is based on decidim, a free open-source software originally created by the Barcelona City Hall as a participatory democracy platform for cities and organizations.
