Key Aspects of the Conference on Democratic Innovation
Our liberal democracies face a number of challenges today. We would like to present new findings and discuss ideas together as to how to innovate our democracy. Our objective is to overcome the status quo and give unconventional solutions a chance to be expressed and discussed.
Democracy is based on a collective effort from each of us. In this why we designed this conference to be as participatory as possible to give everyone the chance to express their ideas and allow for new perspectives to be voiced on each topic.
The conference aims at connecting the international community of innovators with German thinkers and doers, in order to facilitate future synergies. Our conference will offer space and time to network and individually discuss your ideas with your peers.
The key to a better future is to not only think about the problems our democracies are facing, but to solve them. We will therefore synthesize the outcome of our conference in a best-practice compendium with all the projects and ideas presented during the conference.
