[Webinar] Smarter Philanthropy: Harnessing Collective Intelligence to Change the World Faster
October 26th, 2023
Smarter Together is a non-profit whose purpose is to study, design, develop and evaluate democratic innovations and collaborative governance mechanisms in the public field and within organizations. We want to expand governments’ and communities’ ability to solve public problems more effectively, by fostering more inclusive and deliberative governance around the world.
Our mission: To expand governments’ and communities’ ability to solve public problems more effectively, by fostering more inclusive and deliberative governance around the world.
Our vision: A world in which democracy is strengthened because it develops more effective solutions to public problems, in ways that are seen as more legitimate, and more in tune with people’s deeper values and emotions.
1. WEBINAR: Smarter Together’s webinars are designed for a large audience to disseminate the good practices of Collective Intelligence. Each webinar takes concrete examples, methodologies and tools applied to a public problem.
2. MASTERCLASS: Smarter Together designs and organizes tailored masterclasses for actors involved in policy making, advocacy, research and social innovation. In 1 or 2 day-format, experts and facilitators work with the participants to apply Collective Intelligence’s methods to their own work and challenges.
3. KNOWLEDGE CREATION & DISSEMINATION: Smarter Together produces content adapted to policy makers and civil society actors to help them address public problems. Smarter Together’s platforms (website, social media, newsletter) put forward methods and stories of Collective Intelligence in different forms: articles, video interviews of academic and policy experts & podcasts.
4. NETWORK BUILDING: Smarter Together’s events gather a community of experts concerned and interested in Collective Intelligence for democracy and governance.
