4th Public Participation and Deliberative Democracy Festival featuring SensJus
The Public Participation and Deliberative Democracy Festival is an open
and free event that brings together people of diverse backgrounds that are
interested in, and work on, engagement of citizens in science, policymaking and
deliberative democracy in Europe (and globally). These include EU countries, EU
institutions, civil society organisations, research and academia, and
artists. To coincide with the European Year of Youth, the theme of the
Festival this year is 'Youth Participation'.
With a stunning array of speakers from different disciplines and
background, we will explore the possible convergence between civic
environmental monitoring and citizens' assemblies, a topic now at the centre
of the request of young activist movements for climate and the environment. We
will reflect together in particular on how scientific evidence collected and
analysed from below can enrich specific deliberative democracy processes.
