Iceland is one of the world’s oldest democracies. In 2008 the country was hit hard by the economic turmoil and is still recovering. As a part of that work Iceland is forming a new constitution and it is not being done by office-holders or politicians. The people of Iceland will write their new constitution together in an open and collaborative way using the web and social media.
