Democracy Futures Workshop

Sold Out in its First Year – Back in 2024!

The Democracy Futures 2024 Workshop will invite participants to imagine possible futures for a flourishing democracy in Canada. In the workshop, participants will be guided through various activities and processes of strategic foresight. Strategic foresight is an approach to rigorously look at different possibilities of how the future may unfold over time. In small groups, participants will work through a series of exploratory activities in order to uncover new insights, connections, implications and opportunities for the future of democracy. The workshop will be immersive and require participants to work together to develop new visions for a resilient democracy.

 

Tickets to this workshop will be available soon. Please check back.

We’re at a pivotal moment for democracy in Canada and democracies around the world. It’s time to re-connect pro-democracy voices, confront the corrosive forces that erode public trust, and reignite progress that delivers positive change for people.
