At the core of our mission lies a deep commitment to placing democracy within reach of every individual.

That’s why we’ve created a secure, free and open source participation platform for ourselves and the world, empowering organisations and communities to connect individuals from diverse locations and timezones. Through our platform, we enable people to engage in meaningful discussions and make collective decisions on matters that directly impact their lives and welfare.

Who uses our platform?

Our platform is designed for organisations and communities who value a diversity of opinions. It’s especially loved by civil society leaders who believe that everyone has the right to make their voice heard. While the below are our most common types of user, the platform is used by all kinds of groups. Schools, local governments, book clubs, friendship groups, families – you name it!

Civic movements

These changemakers use the Citizen OS platform to initiate public discussions and collect ideas on the topics that they stand for, be it the protection of flying squirrels, women rights or the ethics of AI.

They send the result of the discussions to the local government or other decision-makers to amend the law or change regulations. They often also use the platform internally, to engage their members in decisions relating to their organisation.

Active citizens

Active citizens are the ones who raise difficult questions about the problems facing their communities, and invite their community members into the discussion on the Citizen OS platform. Whether it’s the local government´s proposed construction project or changes to the local bus schedule, active citizens take action to discuss and communicate their opinions to the decision-makers.

Smaller communities, such as neighbours in the same building, often discuss in private groups what to build on their empty yard, or decide on what kind of administrative service provider to contract.

Professional Unions and Associations

These guys are so busy that it's almost impossible to get them in the same room at the same time! That’s why they use our platform for asynchronous meetings and general meetings. They hold discussions and votes: setting the directions of their advocacy groups, electing board members and approving the annual report.

Members are also engaged in the everyday decisions of these organisations, with every member able to participate regardless of their location or schedule.

Political parties

Party members participate in internal discussions on the Citizen OS platform, to decide on their party's political stance. This means party representatives can be confident they’re communicating the party's collective position, not just their personal opinion.
