From 3-5 November 2014, the Strasbourg World Forum for Democracy - an annual gathering of leaders, opinion-makers, civil society activists, representatives of business, academia, media and professional groups - will debate key challenges for democracies worldwide. The insights gathered during the World Forum meetings inform the work of the Council of Europe and its numerous partners in the field of democracy and democratic governance. The SWFD 2014 will engage with young people and with decision-makers and opinion-formers in a reflection on current patterns of exclusion and involvement and will explore new ways of engaging young people in re-visioning the democratic arenas of today.
Deadline for applications: 1 October 2014.
