The German Consulate General Co-presents:
Together with the University of Cologne New York Office, the German Center for Research and Innovation (DWIH) New York and Virginia Tech we cordially invite you to a panel discussion and networking reception.
Are we taking democracy for granted? What is its current state in the western world and how can we ensure its well-being in the future? How can we live and practice democracy today? With the upcoming U.S. presidential election seen by many as a pivotal event, 2020 is a year that yields potentially crucial political developments and decisions with important consequences for the future opportunities and challenges of democracy. At the same time, renascent nationalism, right-wing populism, and other extreme political currents are on the rise in many countries, with educators struggling to lay foundations for a democracy for the next generations of world citizens.
Two events will offer platforms to discuss and reflect on these issues: a public panel discussion “Democracy and Education in the Age of Renascent Nationalism” and a preceding student workshop “Reconsidering John Dewey: Education and the Current Crisis of Democracy”.
