November 11th & 12th
Casa Llotja de Mar, Barcelona

The Democracy4all international conference has been held annually since 2019.


It brings together talent, experts and policymakers to share and discuss the latest advances in technology and regulation. Its orientation makes it a unique event in the world because it focuses on the use of the blockchain as an instrument of democratic improvement in terms of social, corporate and individual governance.

It offers Catalonia the opportunity to host the most important international conclave for political actors and institutions everywhere, and contributes to speeding up the dialogue between government bodies and new technologies.


D4A 2021 will be based on the 12 Principles of Good Democratic Governance set by the Council of Europe. 

The 12 Principles of Good Democratic Governance encapsulate fundamental values defining a common vision of democratic governance in Europe. Using the 12 Principles as a reference point can help public authorities at any level measure and improve the quality of their governance and enhance service delivery to citizens. We are convinced that blockchain technology can be a fundamental tool to achieve them.

These principles are:


Participation, Representation,
Fair Conduct of Elections




Efficiency and Effectiveness


Openness and Transparency


Rule of Law


Ethical Conduct


Competence and Capacity


Innovation and Openness to Change


Sustainability and Long-term Orientation


Sound Financial Management


Human rights, Cultural Diversity and Social Cohesion






Democracy4All is a place to get hands-on in understanding how blockchain technology can improve governance in general. For that reason, one of the main activities that take place during the conference are workshops, to which all attendees are able to participate in.

More information


A dedicated area will be provided for the hybrid (online & offline) roundtable discussions with different organizations, which will be organized depending on geographical location, to enable contrasting diverse jurisdictions and generating insightful debate.

Many topics will be held in various sessions, where participants and representatives from all around the world will have the opportunity to raise their voice. The objective is to offer a wide variety of topics (always related to the techno-political space) that any entity, firm or association willing to participate can find their place in the discussion where they feel the most comfortable to participate.

More information

There will be a room where participants will have the opportunity to pitch for 7-10 minutes their ideas and be listened by VCs or angel investors. For this objective, all the participants will be provided with the relevant information on the challenges and topics that need to be addressed for participating in the pitching stage.

Dinners &
Cocktail Parties

The event will also gather 2 VIP dinners and 3 Cocktail Parties focused on allowing networking between people of interest.


They will be exclusive events held in locations outside La Llotja (most of them) and not during the main conference hours. Participants will have the unique opportunity to join some of the most influential figures regarding the techno politics space as well as other interesting parties such as VCs, business representatives or other main stakeholders, thus being able to meet all the top guests of the conference without hassle and crowd attention.
