#NuestraConstitución (lit. Our Constitution) is a digital platform promoted by the Fundación Democracia y Desarrollo, a Chilean civil society organization that in 2015, in the process of the participatory constitutional reform that is taking place in Chile, promoted various spaces for digital and face-to-face deliberation in order to contribute citizen's opinions to the aforementioned reform process. Among the activities mentioned are workshops in schools and detention centers, as well as events for information exchange with citizens. In 2016, at the end of the reception stage of ideas the project had 35 000 interactions, having channeled over 8500 proposals and suggestions which were transformed into 590 ideas. All these ideas were compiled and presented to citizens in 2016 through the Final Citizen Report.
