“Speed Dating Democracy” with the Lab Presenters 

...

“Speed Dating Democracy” is an innovative method designed to promote dialogue and interaction. The Forum participants are given the opportunity to speak with a lab presenter for 15 minutes and then switch to the next presenter. It will give Forum participants the chance to discuss the initiatives of the labs informally with the presenters.

Unconferences & Democracy Prototyping Sessions

...

The unconferences will enable spontaneous discussions, as well as fresh ideas and new alliances to emerge. Youth participants will be asked to develop “prototypes” of an “ideal” democracy which will be presented in dedicated unconference sessions. It should consist of different models composed by proposals for citizens and societal structures “from birth to death” from a citizen’s perspective. Such an ambitious exercise may cover all kinds of issues from education to migration, consultation processes to eligibility of candidates, internet to freedom of expression etc.
