project-vodic-EU-og.jpg

As usual at DJND, we have once again produced a guide for people who, for various reasons, are unable to participate in European elections and referendums like others. It is aimed at people who live abroad, people with disabilities, those who will be elsewhere in Slovenia on election day, etc. – in short, for everyone who cannot vote in the usual way. We create these election guides because we believe in the importance of political participation and actively promote it.

Omnia vodič. Zemljevid Slovenije na desni z ikonami za volišče, na levi piše "Kje lahko glasujem, če bom na dan glasovanja na volitvah v Evropski parlament in referendumih na izletu?" Spodaj piše Zemljevid OMNIA volišč.

OMNIA polling stations, which allow voters to participate in elections even if they are outside their home constituency on election day, are organised throughout the country. To encourage voter turnout and facilitate access to polling stations, we created a simple interactive guide to OMNIA polling stations for the 2024 European Parliament elections and the referendums taking place at the same time. As voters need to register their intention to vote at an OMNIA polling station in advance, we also added instructions on how to do this to the map.

Zemljevid predčasnih volišč. Na desni je zemljevid z oznakami za volišča. Na levi piše: "Kam na predčasno glasovanje za volitve v Evropski parlament in referendume?"

The map of polling stations for early voting is one of the online tools we use to actively encourage voters to fulfil their civic duty. For the elections to the European Parliament and the referendums taking place at the same time in June 2024, we created, among other things, a simple interactive map of polling stations. The map shows all polling stations and users can click on the nearest polling station to find out more about it.

project-izvoli-djnd.jpg

We have developed the online application izvoli.eu in cooperation with the international network VoteMatch Europe to make it easier to decide in the European Parliament elections. The application contains 30 statements that have been addressed by almost all lists running in the elections. Users can also take a stance on these statements and find out which political option they are closest to in terms of their level of agreement. Similar questionnaires were also answered by parties running on European lists in other Member States, so users can also use these statements to check where they stand in the broader European context.

Ilustracija ljudi, ki držijo v rokah znake za glasovanje (palec gor, palec dol).

The open source platform Consul is designed for the implementation of participatory budgeting in various organisations. We have also installed it in the municipality of Trebnje, which has invited its residents to have a say in the use of municipal funds. The introduction of participatory budgeting increases the transparency of municipal finances, actively involves the population in decision-making about their common future and improves life in the municipality based on community proposals.

project-zbori-obcank-FB.jpg

Between 10–12 May, 2023, we hosted a training on organising and leading citizens assemblies in Kranjska Gora. The training was organised in collaboration with lecturers from the Polish organization "Center for Blue Democracy." Citizens assemblies are becoming increasingly widespread and recognized internationally as a way to involve the public in local government activities. Such forums need to be well-designed, and conducted with trust, ease, and joy. Participants at the workshop learned about the process of organizing citizen forums according to the principles of "design thinking."

A comprehensive overview of good practices concludes with concrete recommendations for the implementation of new models of democratic deliberation.

project-pp-kampanja-2022.png

At Danes je nov dan, we have been promoting the introduction of participatory budgeting and the local level for a long time, so we used the occasion of local elections to campaign for it. Before the elections, we contacted all the mayoral candidates, inquiring about their position regarding participatory budgeting. We organized all the acquired information on a website, where voters could check which candidates committed to introducing participatory budgeting in their municipality in case of victory.
