Decide Madrid is the first e-participation platform that allows citizens, associations, NGOs and companies to be involved in the policy-making process in the Madrid municipality.

The data-driven participation and digital decision-making platform was launched in 2015 by the Madrid City Council. The platform allows citizens to make proposals, vote in citizen consultations, propose participatory budget projects, decide on municipal regulations and open debates to exchange opinions with others.

In 2018, Decide Madrid received the United Nations Public Service Award in the category “Making institutions inclusive and ensuring participation in decision-making.”

The citizen participation platform has been most successful in engaging citizens in a project to remodel the city’s Plaza de España where 26,961 citizens were involved in making and voting on proposals. Participatory budgeting attracted 45,522 people to get involved in its first year, and Decide Madrid has 400,000 registered users in 2018.
