Great ideas

People from Germany, Italy, Sweden, UK and the U.S. handed in ideas for the DemoDay. The teams designed offline and online events, software and web apps, algorithms and data visualizations as well as digital educational programs – all to strengthen democracy. What a great result!
The DemoDay presented a selection of the best projects.
We saw eleven amazing presentations and were impressed by the teams expertise, motivation and perseverance – most of the teams have been working for more than six months on their projects. Finally five teams were awarded and many more connected to powerful enablers to help them further develop and bring their ideas to life.
