Dialogzentrale (“online dialogue hub” in English) is a citizen participation tool that allows for both single and multiple-phase participation processes. Dialogzentrale is built on the CMS, Drupal.
Its expansive modular toolkit includes crowdmapping, idea crowdsourcing, document annotation, participatory budgeting, and ask-your-mayor. On the platform, citizens can contribute suggestions, rate, pose questions and comment on one or more topics. The mapped-based module enables participation for geo-referenced procedures.
In early 2017, “opendoors,” another e-participation product of Zebralog (the firm responsible for Dialogzentrale’s development), was integrated into Dialogzentrale.
Zebralog is located in Germany with Berlin and Bonn offices. Zebralog was founded in 2003 and launched Dialogzentrale in 2014.
