Participatory democracy in the making
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.
In the midst of everything going on in the world we, the organisers of democracy festivals all over the region, feel there’s an urgent need of cooperation. We feel there’s a need to grow together, share ideas and solutions, inspire entrepreneurs, build a network.
We can proudly say that Democracy Festivals have gone viral in the Nordic-Baltic Sea region. They are all well-known and respected in their countries, they have all become must-attend events for everybody who is interested in the country’s future.
