The proposal of training workshop relates to demonstrate and empower participants in the platform used by civil society in the last NETMundial, which occurred in April 2014 in Brazil. Initially, a public consultation raised hundreds of ideas and more than a hundred thousand votes on Internet Governance through the methodology of AllOurIdeas, by voting in pairs (allourideas.org). Fifteen proposals that served as a guide to the HUB São Paulo, which also used a separate platform of systematization were elected. People were able to attend using social networks and a collective interface and transparent preparation of public input, which guided the intervention on the floor of the HUB at NETMundial. This material was also used as input to a letter delivered to the demands of Internet Forum in Brazil. Our goal is to demonstrate in practice these platforms and make it available for other events of governance. All the code is published and tools are licensed under GPL v.3.
