Save to Calendar 18-11-2021 12:00 am 19-11-2021 12:00 am G1000 Autumn School

Are you a public servant or politician, looking for new ways to involve citizens in policy-making in your community?

Are you thrilled to learn about fascinating examples of public deliberation from governments in France, Australia, Belgium, Ireland and elsewhere?

Then join us for the G1000 Autumn School in Eupen, the capital of German-speaking Belgium and home of the world’s first permanent institution composed of citizens drafted by lot.

Every year, the G1000 Autumn School brings together a number of world-leading experts in the field of deliberative democracy and sortition, as well as dozens of public servants and politicians working at all levels of government. With their help, you can develop your own project tailored to the specific requirements of your city or region.

In 2019, we hosted more than 50 participants from 11 countries in Europe.

Why an Autumn School?

One of G1000’s main objectives is to ‘build capacity’ for the development of democratic innovation. As such, we want to inspire, educate and assist politicians and/or civil servants in designing a model for deliberative democracy and sortition in their own communities.

During the Autumn School, participants are informed about interesting cases regarding deliberative democracy from around the world. Additionally, participants will be assisted in developing their own project, based on the political and sociological characteristics of their community. We will equally consider some good arguments and incentives that politicians can employ when introducing these methods.

Where and when ?

The G1000 Autumn School will take place in Eupen, the capital of the German speaking region of Belgium and the home of the ‘Ostbelgien model, on Thursday 18 and Friday 19 November, 2021. Those that are interested can also participate in the welcome drink offered by the Parliament on Wednesday 17 November.

Program

The Autumn School is centered around several thematic workshops, during which we discuss the different stages of a deliberative process: Set-up, recruitment, deliberation, outputs and institutionalization. To help the participants, we have invited several experts to discuss several specific cases that they have been working on. Furthermore, the experts will also advise the participants when they work on their projects.

The days proceed as follows: first, we have a general introduction of the central case studies of the day. After that, we organize several workshops. Each workshop is structured as follows:

  • a brief info session of the experts, who discuss how they dealt with several issues related to the central theme of the workshop;
  • questions from the audience and
  • time for the participants to work on their own projects, with the help of the experts.

As a result, at the end of the Autumn School, all participants will have a draft-design of a deliberative process that they can apply in their own community.
