Interdependent, Cooperative and Diverse Complexity: Building a Plurality Agenda for Democracy & Web3

RadicalxChange Foundation and Fundación Karisma invite you to join us in learning, getting inspired and co-creating with us at our pop-up event at Schelling Point — Bogotá!

Since 2018, our communities have advanced a series of ground-breaking primitives — many of which have been widely adopted within the Ethereum ecosystem. Now, we are centering the narrative on a broader conceptual framing that connects those primitives into a cohesive vision: Plurality 🖖

Plurality is both a democratic agenda for the future of technology and governance, and a social philosophy based on the principle of fostering cooperation across diversity. Throughout the past few years, pluralistic features have been instantiated on multiple Ethereum-based protocols, ranging from governance, identity, payments, reputation and public goods funding solutions; and also by forward looking governments, and other innovative digital platforms.

At the Plurality tent @ Schelling Point — Bogotá, we’d like to highlight these achievements, and point the way forward to a path that can support even more complexity, diversity and structure, through novel and recombinant ecosystems at Web3 and other infrastructures of power, such as governments and grassroots movements.


Our day will go from 10 AM to 5 PM COT.
