The election of Trump, Brexit, populists in Europe and Latin America… what’s happening to the democratic world?
We humans have been political creatures ever since we’ve descended from our trees. The complexity of our minds, our sociability, our weakness in comparison to other animals, all of these have become a fundamental driver for organizing ourselves in groups.

Does this imply we need a drastic shift, a democracy for the 21st century?

We’ll get together in front of our screens and with coffee or other beverage in hand talk to other human beings that are as passionate as ourselves about finding answers.

Some subjects we’ll touch on:

•The collective vs. the individual – who’s more important?
•More liberty or more safety?
•Blockchain – a new political tool?
•What are the basic rights of sentient beings?
•Who qualifies as a “citizen”?
•Gamification – the key to political participation?
•Populism – how do we keep our politics safe?
•Economic and political inequality and how to control them

Upon finishing the get-together, we will have drawn closer to the bases that will sustain a new political system, together with conclusions on its objectives and basic conditions.
