WORLD FORUM FOR DEMOCRACY 2016 - Call for Lab submissions
WFD 2016The 2016 World Forum for Democracy (Strasbourg, 7-9 November) will focus on the relationship between education and democracy.

It will examine whether they can reinforce each other and together address the risks of new social divides. In particular, the forum will explore how education and democracy can nurture active citizens with critical and analytical skills, and how through fostering grassroots innovation and bottom-up democratic reform, it can help develop civic engagement and improve opportunities for all.

Please find in the attached document more information on the WFD 2016 as well as a call for Lab submissions
