Bringing digital disruption to government

Bringing digital disruption to government

A few weekends ago we were invited to speak at TransPolitica, a conference on real world policy changes for a radically better future.

Together with Tim from the CivicTech coworking hub RainGods (home to Represent’s London office) and Dan from MegaNexus we discussed how social enterprises are revolutionising democracy and the political process: from better information, to more abundant voting, and crowd intelligence to the very purpose of Government.

Please enjoy this inspiring video. Tim does a great intro to the landscape at the start, but if you’d like to dive in to Kathryn’s part about Represent it begins at about 14 minutes in.

If you’d like to learn more about the day and the sessions, this list of questions asked should give you an idea of which presentation to watch next.
