Fragility of Democracy – Workshop on “Engagement and Activism”
October 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Democracy thrives on change and adaptation to current living conditions. Politics is the instrument and the form of these adjustments. Politics in a democracy gives citizens the opportunity to get involved in the processes of change or to take them into their own hands. What opportunities does a democracy offer? How do changes or adjustments happen? Where does resistance come from and how can it be understood or overcome? In the session ‘Engagement and Activism’, participants will get to know an exciting instrument that helps them and their students to observe and understand processes of change, but also helps young people to become active and get involved themselves.
