Can current examples of new politics in Europe inspire and support adventures in Denmark?
Politics are changning. And not just in the constellation of parties at power in councils or parlaments, but also in the way we as citizens have a voice and can influenze political decisionmaking and processes.
In this interactive talk we will look at the experiences of involving citizens and developing a new political citizensship in Barcelona and the english town Frome.
We’ve been invited together with David Fernández from Barcelona en Comú, and Peter Macfadyen from Frome town council to kickstart a conversation about new politics in Denmark.
They have both been part of introducing more participatory and citizen driven politics in their respective local enviroment – both through the existing and new political structures.
