“Many small people who in many small places do many small things that can alter the face of the world.” (African saying)

The year 2016 has been a tough one for Democracy: Brexit, Trump’s Election, Erdogan’s Turkey, growth of populism all over Europe, …

Do you also have the feeling that something has to change? Why not starting with us: Let’s get together and redesign the future of Democracy with the power of Design Thinking.

This workshop is for anyone who thinks that something must happen now - keeping in mind that with the approaching elections, 2017 is a crucial year for Europe.

How does it work?

We want to get from discussion towards action. On Saturday, we will guide you through a shortened Design Thinking process to rethink and challenge our actual Democracy. In teams, you will tackle an issue of your choice in order to come up with tangible prototypes that can be regarded as starting points for change. On sunday we will give you support to do the first steps towards realizing your idea. The final prototypes will be presented in front of a public audience.

Saturday: 10:00 – 18:00
Sunday: 10:00 – 14:00 Final Presentation: 15:00-17:00
