How Will This Series Work?

Evolve Democracy will launch on August 11, 2020 with a monthly webinar, curated and facilitated by engage2’s Founder and Managing Director Amelia Loye.

The webinar will explore the democratic models and innovations that representative governments are testing and implementing around the world now.

The webinars will include facilitated, live discussions with up to 15 participants per session. These will be unrecorded.

Evolve Democracy will also host monthly interviews between Amelia and public servants working with and for governments. They will talk about case studies and dig deep into the methods and tools opening up governments and enriching representative democracies between elections.

These interview recordings will be published on our blog and Soundcloud, and shared on this page.
