Academy for a Learning Democracy

Communication + Institutionalisation

The concept of a Learning Democracy is not very known yet. To put it on the political and academic agenda we need a third column of communication and institutionalisation. Because just like a stool the Academy has a better and more balanced standing on three legs. We especially lay the focus on promoting and explaining the vision of a self-improving democratic society. Our aim is to professionalise the work of democracy developers and to secure the political and organisational sustainability of our own Academy. 


At the  Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy in Rome in September 2018 we could already advertise our idea through diverse formats. Many international guests showed great interest in applying the idea of a Learning Democracy on their own countries - talks with partners in India, Taiwan and South-Korea have been initiated with Democracy International. Therefore we plan for the next Global Forum in Taichung, Taiwan in October 2019 to present a prototype for the Asian market.
