Participa.br: Website allows citizens to propose discussions on topics of interest

Through the site, developed entirely on open source software, the citizen can watch broadcasts of online events — such as debates and conferences — to participate and create discussion communities, contribute to the consultation already in progress, suggest topics for future discussions and disseminate and seek support for their proposals.

Released in 2013, Participa.br already has received over 2 million visits. The issues under discussion range from the World Cup participatory to the regulation of an Internet legal framework, from agro-ecology and a National Popular Education Policy to participation in the federal government's planning and budgeting process.
