Federated eParticipation Systems for Cross-Societal Deliberation on Environmental and Energy Issues

FEED provides for an online platform to facilitate clearer and more transparent decision making, as well as effective communication between citizens, businesses, and decision makers in the field of environmental and energy issues. 

The project aims to involve key stakeholders (decision-makers, experts on eParticipation, environmental and energy issues, government officials, citizens, businesses, NGOs and youth) early in the legislative deliberation process. Users will be able to introduce subjects for online debate, to relate existing content to legislative information and related topics, and also to upload support material, such as videos, that help to explain or refine aspects of the deliberation. It will also be possible to retrieve content and comment on specific issues through specially adapted and easy to use interfaces, for example a roadmap to take the user through the various stages and structure of a legal act, thus enabling users to better understand, and comment on specific parts.

The main objective of FEED is to support public deliberation and consultation by providing users with seamless access to existing content on environmental and energy issues.

The end result should be better quality policy at the European level. In the process FEED builds trust and facilitates acceptance of policy by giving NGOs, citizens and businesses the means to supervise government and policy implementation, thus balancing the influence of lobbying organisations. Finally, it widens the responsibility for policy-making, and the ownership of resulting policy, by fostering active citizenship.
