Democracy Network – Defending vs Developing Participation: Democracy Brown Bag Lunch 1

The Democracy Network will host the first in a series of brown bag lunches online on 26 January exploring “Defending vs Developing Participation”.

How can philanthropy defend against threats to participation? Can philanthropy play a role in further developing or expanding participation? The conversation will be kicked off by Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian and Porticus, who will each present their work on participation to start the discussions. The goal of each lunch is to casually get to know other foundations in the field of democracy, to develop a mutual understanding on current practices and stimulate discussions on learning needs that will shape Philea’s relaunch of the Democracy Network from mid-2023 onwards.

All democracy lunches are held on Teams and are camera optional.

This event is for foundations and funders only.
