Festival of Democracy 2020

The associated program of the 24th Forum 2000 Conference
October 9 – November 17, 2020, online


The Festival of Democracy is the associated program of the Forum 2000 Conference. Our mission is to celebrate civic activity as a cornerstone of a free and democratic society. We want to inspire public discussion about the responsibility of citizens for society, about tolerance and respect for human rights, about the world we want to live in and about democracy. We want to learn to listen and speak with each other because our shared future is in our hands.


A festival during which crucial current issues are discussed and ideas and visions for our democratic future are put forward. An event in which everyone who upholds democratic values will need to take part.
