For the fifth year in a row, Innocracy 2021 brought together thinkers and doers from the fields of politics, academia, civil society, as well as arts and culture in Berlin. This year, we explored how we can democratise areas of our societies that are being removed from democratic control. At Innocracy, one aspect became very clear: Any radical change requires strong legitimation through democratic processes. Therefore, the answer to the multiple crises of the 21st century can not be less but only more democracy.
#MyDemocratisation An exhibition to capture human perceptions, memories, and wishes around democratisation efforts
Das Progressive Zentrum and the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft teamed up with artist Leo Leowald to capture human perceptions, memories, and wishes around democratisation. The exhibition was first presented at Innocracy 2021 and can now be found online in the virtual gallery.
More and more people perceive the future no longer as a promise but as a threat. Some are overwhelmed by the complexity and speed of economic transformation and social changes. Others are scared because, in their view, these developments are not happening fast enough. The critical task of democracies is to allow for control over the future without closing it and to open up the future without making it uncontrollable.
Das Progressive Zentrum invites you to join the Innocracy Conference 2021. Together with renowned speakers, we want to explore how processes of democratisation can be answers to the multiple crises we are facing.
In the face of systemic challenges such as the climate crisis, we must transform the way we live, consume and produce as societies. Yet, no transformation can succeed without a clear sense of direction. We need visions of the future that unify and integrate democracies on their way forward. But can visions really help to open up the future – especially in times of crises? How can we learn to imagine and learn to develop visions that are tangible?
On Thursday, 10 October 2019, we hosted the third Innocracy Conference. More than 200 participants and 32 speakers from 11 countries shared their insights, ideas and best practices to explore the how of democratic transformation towards more inclusive and sustainable societies at Kalkscheune, Berlin.
