Airesis Social Network for E-Democracy



Aireses is an online platform that promotes e-democracy by offering numerous organizational and methodological tools for communicating, collaborating, and participating in direct democracy. 

Problems and Purpose



Aireses is a fusion of two e-democracy projects: Agora 2.0 and DemocracyOnline. The Agora 2.0 project began as a small group in 2009 and soon expanded to over 200 volunteers. In 2012, Agora 2.0 and DemocracyOnline were combined and was relaunched as Airesis. A year later, its founders established the Democratic Technologies Association ("Tecnologie Democratiche") to secure funding and support for the platform's continued development.
