PAST EVENT

Welcome all democracy supporters!

This week come along and discuss any issues you feel passionate about and let your voice be heard!

Our VR Democracy website is now live where we can continue our discussions and create policies and solutions together! Once we have a hot topic voted on by the community, we’ll set up a VR talk show with a wider audience to come ask questions and hear more about your great ideas!

If you’d like to participate on the panel, please join our Discord and let us know which issues and/or policies you like to discuss, in the ‘vr-events’ channel.

To prepare for the event, you are also welcome to do our free training course. The course will give you foundational skills in media literacy, critical thinking, public speaking, moderation, and public policymaking. The ‘public policymaking’ module includes a case study which shows how to post issues and policies on the website.

VR Democracy is an evidence-based, problem-solving platform that combines logical reasoning, virtual collaboration and debate to maximise citizen problem-solving capabilities. We aim to strengthen democracy and contribute to meaningful change via edutainment which increases empathy, knowledge and a sense of shared future. Skills development includes media literacy, critical thinking, civic deliberation, public policy making, public speaking, debating, moderation and leadership.

Hope to see you there!
