It can be difficult to know where to begin when creating your landing page, especially on Decidim. Decidim is oriented around transparent and open participation. However, how each city, lab, or organization wants to communicate where and how participants can engage with a project varies!
Platoniq has created a series of new content block for Decidim homepages. Designing the homepage came after realizing that the prefabricated landing initially available by the platform was creating and extra obstacle for labs who wanted an online presence that best represented them, their aims, and aesthetics. ...
In our last phase of our engagement strategy we wanted to check the health of our labs and their platforms. As a closing step this would wrap up the learning and capacity building thus far co-created and shared by Platoniq within the meta platform and serve as a form of self evaluation for future self directed improvement by the labs.

The big questions behind our platform health check are: Are people aware of, able to access, stay informed, and participate...
At Sharing Cities, an event in Barcelona this November, Platoniq shared some of the work and insights from working on OpenHeritage especially in connection to SDG 11.

At the Decidimfest, Platoniq held several workshops to demystify the platform and much of the ideas that surround it. To start with Ivan, an integral part to OpenHeritage’s technical management, gave a talk on what to do after downloading Decidim. While many communities, municipalities, and collectives get excited at first click, it’s trying to adapt the platform afterwards that becomes the sticking point. Ivan sh...
