Manual "Ten keys to create your proposal"

At the moment your proposal is still in draft mode, it is a perfect time to read this summary on how to publish a citizen proposal and start gathering supports. Although you have already overcome some of the steps that reviews this article, such as becoming a user, there are many others that can be very useful, as they incorporate recommendations. This is the case of advice on how to write better or which files could complement the information you are entering in the form. Take a look!

Diffusion kit

Here is a manual to help you communicate your proposal and have as much success aspossible. It is essential that you are aware of it and drive it forward. This document will help you to have a strategy in your communication. You can download it in pdf and also read it online.

Images for your social network profiles

Here are some examples of images to inspire you or include in your active profiles in social networks. You can temporarily changing the typical image of your user or the cover of your profile, for another one that announces that you have a proposal on the web and that you are looking for support. You can use some of the images we provide, create your own slogan that suits you best and change them regularly. It is a very grateful space, since anyone who knows you will see it without having to make such an effort.

Email model to share

We offer you a sample email text that you can send to spread the most important data of your proposal. It includes a very visual button for your contacts to support or share the proposal directly. You can preview the email in the user area or send it to the email address with which you have registered on the web. The text will reach your personal mailbox and you will be able to forward it to all your acquaintances. Keep in mind that you can change the text and customize the content to your liking.


The survey is a resource that serves to generate community and to make it easier for others to collaborate and enrich the proposal before publishing it. The survey works in draft mode and once the proposal is published. Each survey can ask questions and give options for answering them. You can define these answers either "Yes" or "No", and also choose options with a small description ("I want a bigger square", "I want a square with swings", "I want a square with more green areas", etc.). To make a survey public and start spreading it you have to define a start and end date. During the chosen date you won't be able to have more than one survey active at the same time, although you can prepare others and make them public with another calendar. Interested people will be able to answer the questions but will need to register on the platform.

Poster of your proposal

The poster model that we provide is designed to collect the basic information of your proposal. We have included some texts that seek to draw attention to the proposal and the need to seek support. When the proposal does not have an image of its own, the poster will include a default image, but we recommend that you attach an image of your own that better reflects your message. You can add it by editing your own proposal. Hang your poster asking for permission before in places like your workspace, the bar where you often have breakfast, your children's school or your building's elevator. You can preview how the poster will look, which is in A4 format, or download it in PDF format to send, publish on the Internet or print.
