Danes je nov dan (in English: Today is a new day) is a non-profit institute and website dedicated to “Nurturing critical thought. Posing other questions. Hacking a new day. Nurturing a safe, inclusive and modern web. And world.” Danes je nov dan got off the ground in 2013 by winning three out of five funding rounds from Google’s Digital News Information Fund, for its solutions Parlameter and Commentality. Parlameter is a parliamentary monitoring tool that enables users to gain unique insights into the work of their representatives. By analysing data gathered from parliamentary sources and visualising it in embeddable information cards, it allows journalists to save time and enhance their online articles with relevant interactive content. The startup’s other solution, Commentality is an embeddable solution for online news organisations that facilitates constructive discussions. It allows users who make comments to engage with others’ statements in a way that both lowers the engagement barrier de-escalates confrontations for participants who are highly emotionally motivated by the subject.
