Best Practices – Madrid Participa

Monday, May 16th, 2005

In the coming months I will share highlights from the global e-democracy best practices research commissioned by the UK Local E-democracy National Project on DoWire.

In a few weeks I’ll be heading to Madrid (May 31) and San Sebastian (June 2), then London (June 6 and 7). An informal session in London to discuss the case studies is in the works at 1 p.m. on June 6. In all three cities DoWire “happy hour” e-democracy gatherings are being planned in the evening. RSVP on the DoWire wiki here:
