The Workshop Day of the Democracy Conference 2022 is an invite-only pre-event. Only representatives of organizations working on developing or researching democracy are invited to this day, to make sure that a high-level exchange of ideas and practices can take place. The participants will have different backgrounds and therefore we will be looking into some specific countries: Estonia, Finland, Norway and the United States, but also the wider European Union and other democracies from around the globe.
The goal of the Workshop Day is to map common problems with our democratic systems, share good practices of development and find ways of collaborating in the future.
There will be no presentations on the Workshop Day, only facilitated interactive sessions meant to create interesting discussions and find new ideas for collaboration.
