A cooperation between Futurium and the charity Brot für die Welt (Bread for the World).
According to the latest Civil Society Atlas, only 14.5 per cent of
the global population still live in countries where they’re more or less
free to speak their minds, gather together freely and fight largely
unhindered against injustice. A study by the Bertelsmann Foundation
suggests that the number of authoritarian governments is constantly on
the rise: merely 67 of the 137 countries investigated are still
democracies. Open societies with civil liberties and opportunities for
political participation and critical involvement can by no means be
taken for granted.
This makes all the more important the role of
civil society – that is, the activities of people who fight to ensure
that human rights are upheld, minorities are protected and spaces for
engagement are kept open. As part of a cooperative event organised by
Futurium and Brot für die Welt on 6 December, our House of Futures will
be offering a platform to such people. We’ve invited outstanding
individuals from around the world who will join us either live on site
or tune in from abroad.
Our guests are from Hong Kong, Togo and
Greece. Their perspectives will be complemented by experts from the
academic world and from Brot für die Welt.
The evening will be moderated by Nadine Hadad.
