The #future will be genius, #Europe! But how do we get there?

Short thesis

Is Europe a cucumber? And if so, what kind of cucumber do we want it to be? There is a great number of activists, initiatives, organizations and people who dare to rethink the system. They are already working in a progressive field of building & exploring (new) forms for a future society and participation processes – digital just as much as analogue. But what are they all up to? Let's pop out ideas and explore the diversity of planned actions for the European Election 2019!

This POPing format welcomes everyone who wants to explore the world of cucumbers, politics & its innovative forms, and gives an insight into what is happening for the and could be done in #Europe

Description

Is Europe a cucumber? And if so, what kind of cucumber do we want it to be? There is a great amount of activists, initiatives, organizations and people who dare to rethink the system. They are already working in a progressive field of building & exploring (new) forms for a future society and participation processes – digital just as much as analogue. But what are they all up to? Let's pop out ideas and explore the diversity of planned action!

Can participation be defined as casting ballots in a box every 4-5 years? Too many citizens do not feel that their vote makes a difference within the realms of current politics. This has led to an overall feeling of distrust of established systems, regardless of whether they are right or wrong. What if people were given the right not only to vote, but also to become an integral part of decision-making? The populist Zeitgeist and its filter bubbles prompts the question of what could be done. As the Power of People is us, let’s explore the cucumbers, Europe and innovative ways of political participation.

 

To have lots of time to meet, eat cucumbers and discuss, the session will be short and crisp: Pecha Kucha is the format. {https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pecha_Kucha}
