Democracy is an institutional order, a form of government, a majority principle. But it is also much more! Democracy is a system of values, an attitude, a cultural state. Democracy is the right to co-determination, the right to collectively shape our future.
But democracy is not only a matter of having the right to collectively decide how we live together. Democracy is also about having the ability to exercise it. That’s why I am excited to announce that I will be joining this year the jury of the Prototype Fund which enables you and your team to realize your ideas on how to strengthen democratic participation in Switzerland during a six month prototyping period.
Apply for up to CHF 100,000 from 17 March until 14 May 2020. Visit the information section of the fund and subscribe to its newsletter to keep up to date. The team hopes to meet you at one of their events and looks forward to your project proposal.
