Lib Dem Digital Joins ALDES!
By ALDES | Sun Jan 31 2021
Back in 2018 Lib Dem Digital was created by James Belchamber to push for better Digital knowledge and understanding in the party, from Digital Identity to Open Source software. Later that year partnered with Lib Dem FLOSS (created by Toran Shaw in 2017) to combine efforts to align Liberal ideas with the Digital world.
Now, Lib Dem Digital is joining ALDES to further that mission - and we're excited to see what we can do together.Read More
Digital Identity Briefing
By ALDES | Sun Jan 31 2021
The ALDES Digital Identity Working Group, formed to inform the debate around digital identity in the party, has now published their briefing. In their words:
The current debate around digital identity is far removed from the old concept of a national ID database. Moving proof of identity is not about copying paper documents onto a digital data base but rather about changing how we think about identity and credentials altogether.
This briefing is aimed at informing everyone, but specifically representatives. If you know a councillor, candidate or MP (and you think this is important), please direct them to this briefing - or send them a PDF copy, if they prefer to read it this way.Read More

The Liberal Stemmocrat: October 2020
By ALDES | Sat Oct 03 2020
To all our new members, I'm so pleased to welcome you to ALDES after a terrific virtual Conference. Personally, I'm a huge fan of Conference but was beyond sold that once we can get back to York, Bournemouth, or Brighton, that we'll be seeing hybrid Conferences, accessible to far more of our membership. ALDES can play a leading role in creating the best of both: incorporating the conversations, energy, and social aspects of a physical Conference, with the accessibility, cost, and on-demand viewing that digital can bring.
The Conference auditorium sessions are up on YouTube, and we'll have our fringe event recordings online soon. Our digital working group continues, and our AGM is on the horizon - RSVP or run for exec via the details below! We'll also be putting out a survey of members' skills, interests, and what you want from ALDES.Read More
