Call for applications: World Forum for Democracy 2019 - Youth Delegation

Democracy and information” is the theme of the World Forum for Democracy in 2019 with two main threads:

  • Democracy dies in darkness: are we getting the information we need?
  • Information and the Future: lost in space or masters of our own fate?

The questions we must address in 2019 are to what extent the information is reliable, whether this helps or hinders citizens in taking part in democratic processes, and what lessons we should learn for ensuring the free flow of information in the future.

The core content of the Forum will consist of discussions about successful initiatives and actions, which have real-life initiatives as a starting point. General guiding principles will then be drawn to encourage and support future policy responses and field action.

In this context, the Youth Department of the Council of Europe will invite 50-60 young people to participate and engage with decision-makers and opinion-formers in a reflection on the question of Democracy and Information.
