Bringing the Future Back to Democracy
In reaction to the coronavirus pandemic, central aspects of life and politics that go far beyond the immediate repercussions of the crisis are fundamentally questioned. Key societal challenges are being addressed with considerable financial effort and a broad consensus has established itself that we are living in times of transformation. The future has returned to the centre of political discourse.
Yet, while we can agree on the pursuit of certain general values such as multilateralism and very specific goals like the “two-degree-target”, we struggle to paint tangible images of the future that provide answers to the question: What kind of a society do we want to become? What should the future framework of our societies look like and how does this translate to our everyday lives? Confronted with systemic challenges like the climate crisis, we lack visions of society that unify and integrate democracies on their way forward.
At Innocracy 2020, we aim to bring together thinkers and doers from the fields of politics, academia, civil society, as well as arts and culture, to create a platform for exploring democratic future visions. Normative images of our future societies build the foundation for successful political narratives, they can help us better safeguard the interests of future generations, and they offer the orientation we so urgently need in times of transformation.
