Theme

“Democracy and information” is the theme of the World Forum for Democracy in 2019 with two main threads:

  • Democracy dies in darkness: are we getting the information we need?
  • Information and the Future: lost in space or masters of our own fate?

All selected participants should arrive on Sunday 3rd November and depart on Saturday 9th November. The youth preparation meeting will take place for all participants on Monday 4 th and Tuesday 5th November in the European Youth Centre before the World Forum begins on 6th of November 2019.
