The G1000 is an independent citizens’ project aimed at revitalizing de- mocracy. It started as an idea, but over a short period of time grew to be the biggest citizens’ initiative for democratic innovation in Europe. The G1000 project facilitated several inclusive events such as a citizen’s sum- mit with 704 participants and subsequent citizen panels. The outcome of the project was mainly that its ideas and its methods stirred public opin- ion and set in motion a debate about the quality and organization of de- mocracy. Furthermore the project has influenced public debate regarding democratic renewal and numerous of different civic participation initia- tives have arisen inspired by the G1000’s ideas.
