Claiming Our Future: National Discussion on Democracy, 26 May

The Claiming Our Future movement will be hosting a national discussion on the nature and future of Ireland's democracy at Croke Park on 26 May. The Wheel is encouraging individuals and organisations with an interest in civil society’s role in building democracy to attend. Claiming Our Future says of the event: “Individuals and organisations from the full breadth of civil society will explore new ideas on democracy and share their thinking with each other on how to reinvent our democracy. This debate is urgent as economic crisis deepens the fault lines in our already flawed democracy. We need a ‘high energy’ democracy if we are to emerge from crisis and flourish as a society. We need a democracy that can raise the temperature of politics, develop alternative social and economic models, and embrace both representative and participative forms of democracy.”
