Citizen Engagement and Deliberative Democracy Festival
The Citizen Engagement and Deliberative Democracy Festival is an annual event organised by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre in the framework of the EU Community of Practice on Citizen Engagement. This year, the 3rd edition of the Citizen Engagement and Deliberative Democracy Festival will happen online, spread over the week of 6-12 December.
The aim is to reach out to different services across EU institutions, civil society organisations and leading citizen engagement and deliberative democracy practitioners from Member States. The activities envisaged during the two days fall roughly into the following categories: showcasing, debating, networking, capacity building, planning and further consolidation.
The programme of this Festival will be a mix of different formats from Commissioners’ addresses, keynotes, moderated sessions and conversations with Commission services, CSOs and other MSs initiatives, citizen engagement activities, training exercises, a performance to a virtual exhibition of citizen engagement and deliberative democracy projects. The target audience of this Festival includes practitioners, policymakers but indeed it is open to any citizen interested in this topic.
