“Democracy Labs” are a way of engaging with citizens, letting them connect witih each other to discuss issues that matter and finally giving their collective view a ‘voice’.
As part of the PaCE project, Democracy labs were run in: Italy, Iceland, Scotland, Spain, Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria and Brussels.

The major work in this was done by the Democrativ Society, one of the project partners.

There are also some summaries and lessons learned from all of these:
