About version 21
What is the future of our festive landscape like? How can political participation be made more inclusive? What potential do new forms of political participation offer? And even to what extent is 70-year-old basic law party democracy sustainable?
On the occasion of the fall 2021 federal election, Z2X and the Futurium in cooperation with Federal Cultural Foundation discuss the future of work and political participation together with young visionaries, thought leaders, interested citizens and policy makers and think more. Together we design ideas for tomorrow’s democracy.
A version21 in May we address the question: Protest, petitions, activism: do we need parties to make a political difference? In order to actively shape politics and make their own voice heard, more and more people are taking to the streets, activating online or getting involved in initiatives, while the number of members of political parties is declining. . What does this mean for the future of political participation? What role should and can the parties play in the future? And what influence do civil society actors have? In version 21, we ask these questions to you in the ideas workshop and discuss them with our guests at a roundtable.
The ideas workshop
Along with members of the Z2X community between the ages of 20 and 29 and with contributions from Ann-Kristin Kölln, Associate Professor at the Institute of Political Science, University of Gothenburg and Lu Yen Roloff, Candidate for the Free Bundestag 2021, we talk about the need for whether we need parties to make a difference politically. We will develop ideas and approaches that we will present at the attached roundtable on May 8 and discuss with the audience.
