Democracy?.. What do you know?

7 Nov 2017

The Augmenting Democracy event held in Trondheim Sept 14-15 was all about giving individuals and groups what they need to re-engage and co-create local, national and international communities. While we have seen the rise of impressive technical solutions to pressing issues, adding complexity has created a growing minority of individuals who are no longer connecting to their community in a meaningful way. This is not sustainable. At the event we were looking for innovative ways of letting people re-connect with their communities and themselves.

Reframing Studio tested how DEMOS SAVVY the Trondheim academic community was using a set of democracy related general knowledge questions. We compared their answers with responses from an anonymous internet audience that took the trouble to fill out the questionnaire posted on-line.

The good news: Trondheim performed better than the internet audience!
