Harrogate District Consensus aims to enhance local democracy through the use of technology. By using Polis, they survey thousands of people in Harrogate, unearthing the best ideas and building consensus. Social media thrives on dividing people, whereas, by using Polis, they bring people together, without fear of cancelling people.
The Micro Agency built the website around Polis which enabled the team to run multiple conversations simultaneously and then reporting on the consensus points once a conversation ends.
The website also allows local political candidates, from all parties, to express their views.
