About us

From D-CENT on Vimeo. D-CENT (Decentralised Citizens ENgagement Technologies) was a Europe-wide project bringing together citizen-led organisations that have transformed democracy in the past years, and helping them in developing the next generation of open source, distributed, and privacy-aware tools for direct democracy and economic empowerment. The EU-funded project started in October 2013 and ended in May 2016. D-CENT tools have shown to be very successful and are now mature to be adopted by many other cities, democratic organisations, parties and parliaments around the world.

We call for open source developers, hackers, social movements, democracy activists and democratic organisations to learn about D-CENT and participate to keep growing the community.
