A Learning Democracy has to be learned as well as studied: professional democracy developers can take care of this joint learning process. The Academy's core therefore is the training and teaching of democracy developers. In dual learning formats we will develop and teach competencies that are needed for the participative designing of transformational processes. 

The content for the trainings has mostly been developed within the R+D work of the Procedere Verbund and is based on the procedurology by Dr. Raban Daniel Fuhrmann. The procedurology is an interdisciplinary field that studies the abundance of procedural aspects and areas. Dr. Fuhrmann is the programme manager of the Academy and can build on longstanding experinces in teaching and training: for example as division manager for organisational development at the TU Berlin, as trainer for Participation Officers or as lecturer at diverse universities and institutes. 

Together with the Weltethos-Institut of Universität Tübingen since 2017 those contents and formats are being examined and substantiated in seminars and project courses (such as: classes about Learning Democracy and Digital Leadership in summer semester 2018).

In the summer of 2019 we organised a first summerschool for democracy development together with the Welethos-Institut. A report with the content and results you can find here (only in German). 

Furthermore we offer trainings for democracy development for members of public administrations and political institutions that - so far - focus mainly on enhancing civic participation. Further information you can find below.
