The world needs a better way to
resolve multi-stakeholder challenges together.
e-Deliberation™ is an online platform where anyone, anywhere,
can convene multiple stakeholders
to decide together on a common agenda for change.
There is no silver bullet answer to complex challenges.
No-one has all the answers. But we each hold part of the solution.
|How it's done|
What makes e-Deliberation unique: it actually delivers a strategy
Most on-line collaboration tools allow for discussions and perhaps opinion polling. That's great for connecting. But beyond that...
What is really needed is to support groups develop substantive multilateral strategies that are respectful of where each stakeholder group is coming from, and capable of addressing the various dimensions of the challenge. This is what e‑Deliberation does.
More than any other platform … e‑Deliberation is designed to not just share information or gather ideas, but to enable decision-making among a large group of participants. To do this, e Deliberation participants move through a very specific process that was designed on the basis of academic and practitioner best practices in group decision-making, comparable to what is used in high-capacity corporate or organizational settings.
