Democracy Fair

Learn to Change in cooperation with the Stadtteilschule Winterhude (WiR) is invited to present and facilitate at the “Democracy Fair”/“Demokratiemesse” Conference in Hamburg, Germany, 19-20 June 2019, hosted by the Landeszentrale für Politische Bildung in Hamburg (Public Centre for Civic Education (Patriotische Gesellschaft, Trostbrücke 4-6)!

The event offers a forum where children and adolescents, young and older adults can discuss current issues and issues of political education together. What political questions interest young people and young adults? What do they want to know? What possibilities exist to promote democratic participation and engagement, to shape politics and society together?

The Democracy Fair features an extensive programme of interviews, podium discussions, podcasts, graphic recordings, business games and exhibitions. The two-day forum provides information on the opportunities and possibilities of democratic participation – whether analogue or digital – with the project market and during the workshops on various projects of Hamburg educational institutions.

The students of the Stadtteilschule Winterhude (WiR) will hold three panels in an open session on gender discrimination in everyday life, the EU and what’s up to me? and on press freedom.

L2C will hold a workshop by Marta Viñes Jimeno, teacher at WiR and active member of L2C, supported by students of the WiR, on Competences for Democracy as key factor for a successful democratic culture. We will use the Cards for Democracy. Let’s play!
