G1000 Autumn School
18 November at 12:00 am — 19 November at 12:00 am
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.Eupen, Belgium G1000 firstname.lastname@example.org DD/MM/YYYY 15
