The Interesting Side of Politics

What is Populi?

"...If we can redefine apathy, not as some kind of internal syndrome, but as a complex web of cultural barriers that reinforces disengagement, and if we can clearly define, we can clearly identify, what those obstacles are, and then if we can work together collectively to dismantle those obstacles, then anything is possible."
by Dave Meslin

Populi is a civic culture project whose main form of massification is through YouTube. Populi seeks to link culture to a deeper and academic content, including subjects such as politics, philosophy, science and many others.

We intend to encourage participation in public debate through an invitation to reflect on issues of civil society and at the same time, valuing the creativity of people reflected in all areas, such as entrepreneurship, innovation, technology, culture and Arts.
