About Us

Who are we?

We are a global community of people in politics and technology. We come together to learn from each other and develop innovative solutions to improve politics. We were set up to address the challenges and opportunities brought by the fourth industrial revolution. Politically, we aren’t left or right – we are forward; toward a better future for mankind.

Since we were established in the summer of 2016, we have created an online community of over 1,500 people and have run hub activities around the world in Berlin, Bogota, Bratislava, Bucharest, London, Paris, Prague, Regensburg, and Vancouver. We are a diverse group of people including political scientists, AI experts, campaigners, developers, civil servants, C-level executives, academics, designers, students, artists, entrepreneurs, and politicians. Our people are passionate and solution driven and they meet to develop new technologies, philosophies, and visions for a new politics in the digital age. We are powered entirely by volunteers.

What do we do?

We convene, collaborate, and create. We have organised keynote speeches, roundtables, and dinners to bring the community together. We have also run hackathons where teams have created video-truth-feeds, apps to inform the electorate, and chatbots.

We’re currently developing the School of Politics, an online education platform to teach citizens the fundamentals of political participation.

We’re working together to define a new framework for global cooperation to address global problems.

We’ve also started developing the world’s first Politician AI to automate tasks politicians are expected to do.

And in November this year, we’re hosting our launch summit on The Future of Politics.

On top of all that, we are expanding our community to North America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Oceania.

Who have we worked with?

As an independent voluntary organisation, we have worked with and partnered with the following organisations who have helped in a variety of ways. This includes pro bono support with speakers, community growth, strategic thinking, programme advice, and venues. We are grateful to everyone who has helped our community thus far. If you’d like to work with us, send us an email join@fourth.group.
