Lightning Talks: Democratising beyond the political
Democratising beyond the political
15 October 2021
10:30am – 12:00pm (CEST)
While children spend a significant amount of their time at school, around one-third of an adult’s lifetime takes place at the workplace. Yet, most schools and workplaces are still organised under the rule of non-democratic and hierarchical principles. This session explores how those institutions in which we spend most of our lifetime and which shape our experiences in the world, such as schools and workplaces, can be substantially improved by democratising them. The two speakers will offer a visionary outlook on concrete proposals of how we can meet some of the greatest challenges to our societies by giving children and workers the power of experiencing that their decisions have a democratic impact.
