Policy Kitchen is a policy crowdsourcing method developed by foraus - Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy, built on a digital innovation platform and physical workshops, so called Policy Cooking Events. It enables a diverse network of thinkers to collaboratively generate bottom-up policy recipes for pressing global challenges. The process is public, anyone can contribute. We will launch our first campaign on biodiversity this September.
We aim to connect the global network of open think tanks and other actors on Policy Kitchen and thus enable large-scale transnational collaboration on issues with a multilateral scope. This will be an important step to strengthen democratic participation in international policy making. Policy Kitchen will also be made available as open source software for other actors willing to use participative methods in their respective domains.
