Five groups of young people, with the support of professional facilitators, experts and artists, will work on a report on the state of contemporary democracy, the threats and opportunities arising from technological developments.

Who decides - us or the algorithms? Are social media inclusive? These are, among others, the questions to which you will be seeking solutions during a two-hour online workshop together with peers from Italy, Germany, Spain, Latvia and Poland.

The meeting takes place in the frames of the international project AUGE 2nd
