DemocracyFirst is a Foundation which was created in May 2008 with the purpose of developing attributes, structures and technologies to support and stimulate a democratic decision making process. The Foundation realizes this goal through its public website, meetings and seminars, and other methods.
The ultimate objective of the DemocracyFirst Foundation is to:
Everywhere decisions are being taken every day; at the sports club, in a company, at school, in local politics, or in regional or country politics. Such decisions could be of great importance and could have a considerable influence and impact on people's daily life. Unfortunately not many people have influence on the decision making process.
One of the means that DemocracyFirst uses to reach this objective is the website OpinionFirst. OpinionFirst provides a central democratic platform which connects people and provides clarity and cohesion in proposals. With this website anyone can launch a proposal or plan and find a maximum number of people to support this proposal or plan. If he or she is able to find maximum support, then this can be an extremely strong argument to actually realizing a plan.
We are convinced that a democratic decision making process, on whatever level, is an important factor for any society, company, club or association in which every individual has value. We hope that this modern approach to a centuries old principle will inspire people to take the initiative for a better society themselves.
