Rebuilding Trust in Democracy

Challenges and opportunities for civic activism

Inclusion – For the people, with the people

24 March 15:00 – 18:00 (on ZOOM) 

Leading academics and civic actors will discuss obstacles and ways forward for civic organisations and social movements in a context characterised by growing distrust in democracy and divisions inside our societies. 

Among the key questions to be discussed: 

How do civic activists reach out to social sectors or geographical areas that do not mobilise, especially those who experience exclusion? 

Has the COVID-19 civic response facilitated civil society’s ability to reach out to different audiences and mobilise more diverse sectors of our societies, for their immediate and long-term needs to be addressed? 

To what extent are civic actors able to re-capture those that are attracted by regressive identity-based backwards thinking? 

Please REGISTER for the event by Monday 22nd March 2021.
