The IOPD Best Practice Award for Citizen Participation recognises successful experiences of local and regional governments in the field of participatory democracy, citizen deliberation, community empowerment, open government, democratic innovations and public participation.
We will then evaluate the compliance with the requirements that are specified in the terms of the Award.
In June, it will be your turn to comment and vote! IOPD members who have signed up to the digital platform will be able to comment on the proposals and ask questions to the person who submits it. Each member will be able to vote for up to five proposals.
If you are not yet registered, join the PARTICIPATE OIDP platform.
From the total number of proposals, a ranking will be made and those that are among the 15 most voted proposals will go to the next phase.
Each member of the jury will evaluate the proposals and will submit a report on each of them through a form. The proposal which has more points will be the winner! Also, the jury will be able to choose up to five special mentions.
The result of the award will be announced in October 2022 and the delivery ceremony will take place during the IOPD Conference of Grenoble in december. The IOPD secretariat will publish the practices submitted.
