WeCitizens : Transparency tools for better democracy
In compliance with the Convention on Human Rights, WeCitizens strives to be an association of voters, a ‘political wikipedia’, an educational institution for citizenship and a quality-surveyor of the public management. We create tools and we initiate campaigns to promote transparency and excellence in the governance of the state, a vibrant democracy in the person’s service and the citizen’s interest in politics.
We have produced five vote advice applications (VAA) in 2014 in Belgium for EU and other elections. In 2016 we started publishing an Index of transparency of political parties. In 2015, we put online PoliticiansOnline, which is the biggest publicly available database about Belgian politicians (with 17 000 records). It is interactive and will be participative in the future.
WeCitizens is politically impartial. We have around 20 000 readers of our newsletter (in French and Dutch). In 2018, twenty associations have joined as member of our general assembly. We aim to develop pedagogical kits for citizenship education. We promote the system of delegated democracy.
In 2019 we promote the right of access to public information, as partner of an international project SIA4Y. Two workshops took place in Belgium, on 27/9/2019 and on 6-7/11/2019. You can find the proceeding on the special event’s page.
