Creativity & Democracy
An assembly is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general assembly (which meets once a year to define the organisation's main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organisation), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of assemblies.
Platoniq Foundation designs digital participatory processes and facilitates innovative participatory methodologies to help build more democratic and just societies and organisations, making use of open civic technologies.
It is also the driving force behind the civic crowdfunding platform Goteo.org, where initiatives with a social impact are financed at regional, national and international level. It also promotes cooperativism and strengthens the Social Economy. For this reason, the Foundation is part of the XES (Xarxa d’Economia Solidària de Catalunya).
Platoniq Foundation promotes transparency, collaborative and ethical economy, democratic innovation and the replicability of experiences. It is financed via partnerships with public and private institutions that share its mission and vision. We have 21 employees in our offices in Barcelona, Madrid and Palma (head office and tax office) and a team of collaborators in Spain and other European countries.
