About Innocracy 2019


Global warming, the digital revolution and social inequality put modern democracy to test. The institutions of the modern democratic state are designed for the challenges of a different era. Therefore, they struggle to meaningfully respond to an increasingly disruptive environment.

Change-makers from both civil society and politics face the pressing question: How must we transform democracy to make it fit for the future? What are the levers for developing and realising reforms that enable a democratic, sustainable and inclusive future?

To transform democracy, we must imagine alternatives to the status quo – and realise them via the democratic political process. This is why we devoted this year’s Innocracy Conference to the “How” of democratic transformation. How can the political system successfully reform itself? How can society and politics rediscover their transformative potential?

We enjoyed discussing the transformation of democracy with over 700 participants and 32 speakers and workshop hosts from all across Europe.

The Innocracy 2019 was structured in three content streams:

 

Our Content Streams
