Next Tuesday 18th October you're invited to join us at Newspeak House at 7pm for the first in our new series exploring new platforms for digital deliberation
We'll be exploring how social movements in Taiwan and Spain have been using online deliberation tools, such as Pol.is, and how these tools could radically alter how we perceive our democracy.
