What is a Democracy Festival?

Democracy Festivals are the platforms for a constructive political dialogue across opinions, age, gender and hierarchy where people come together each summer to discuss how to improve their countries. Civil society activists, entrepreneurs, government officials, ministers and people at large sit together and casually talk about how to make their country a better place for everybody.

Nordic Council of Ministers has granted Democracy Festivals funding to carry our project further for another year.

To rescue democracy, we should go outside. Real spaces, not digital ones, will fix our politics.
