We got it going on.
On May 25, we started the project round in the canton of Zug. Together with two school classes from Schulen Bar, we thought about the latest features of the CH+App and DOPE Elections.
The world is upside down. How does that affect us? During the elections in the canton of Bern, we asked members of the youth parliament what they want from our democracy and from the politics in Bern.
Que se passe-t-il au Parlement ? Surtout pour les jeunes électeurs ou les électeurs inexpérimentés, les activités de notre parlement national sont une sorte de „boîte noire“. Dans le cadre d’un atelier, nous analysons les chances et les risques de mettre à la disposition des électeurs une application qui les aide à observer ce qui se passe au Parlement. À quoi pourrait ressembler une application d’observation du Parlement ?
After focusing on the development of digital election aids since 2019, we were able to hold our first live event on 4 March. In the City Hall of the Canton of Bern, three school classes of secondary level 2 had the opportunity to get to know acting members of the...

During a game workshop at the ZHdK Zurich University of the Arts, a group of psychology students took a look at the CH+App and DOPE Elections. Games for Democracy, what does that mean from a psychological perspective?

Let’s kick off 2021 with a good amount of reading! At the end of 2020, the research report “Projekt CH+ Games for Democracy. User-Friendly Political Self-Education through Entertainment Design” was published in the gamevironments trade magazine.
At the Campus für Demokratie’s online event “Spiel, Spass und Politik – Gamification, Edutainment und Demokratie”, Sophie Walker elaborated on gamification principles in relation to political self-education and shared first insights from the research round in Basel-Stadt.

On Friday we were „The Idea“ at 10vor10! We would like to thank SRF – Swiss Radio and Television for the opportunity and Stefanie Bailer from the University of Basel for her exciting perspective. Click here for the segment (German).
Generally speaking, „security“ describes the absence of threats. In many everyday situations, dangers can be easily recognised: if a car speeds towards us without braking or if someone in public transport coughs potential corona viruses in our face, most people are aware that they are not in a danger-free situation. In the virtual world, dangers are often not so obvious.
For the elections in Basel-Stadt we worked together with Knobotech GmbH. The company of Sven and Nils Knobloch develops apps and web apps. For Projekt CH+ they turned our designs for the Basel election aid into reality.
Our electoral aid was on show in Telebasel on 29 September. Nina Mathys from the Junge Rat and Sophie Walker from Projekt CH+ explained what the CH+ Election App is all about.
The new website is here! If you want to know how Projekt CH+ came to be, you can find a lot of information on the original project blog. Did you know? Projekt CH+ began in 2019 as a master’s project at the Zurich University of the Arts.
