Global forum postponed – Your Workshop proposal
= = =

Dear friends and supporters of democracy around the world!

Thank you very much for proposing a workshop or presentation for the Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy.

The Covid-19 crisis has deeply affected public life all around the world, the Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy is no exception to this. In order to ensure that the Global Forum can remain a truly global event and to allow international participants to join the Forum, we have seen ourselves forced to postpone the event to 28 April – 1 May 2021. You can read the full letter from our co-presidents on this here.

Our upcoming Global Forum in Bern, Switzerland, will now take place in the week of 26 April, 2021.

The 2021 Global Forum in Bern will include a two-day pre-program on 26 and 27 April 2021. That pre-program will be followed by the main forum, 28 April – 1 May 2021. Also on 1 May, the forum will host the Bern Democracy City Summit. And on 2 May 2021, the day after the forum, you will have an opportunity to witness one of the oldest forms of direct democracy in the world, the Landsgemeinde, or cantonal assembly, in the state of Glarus.

Due to the demands that postponement of the Global Forum has posed on our organisation, we have not yet been able to evaluate your submission.
We will return to you with feedback on your proposal this May. 

The call for proposals will also be reopened, with the new deadline for proposals on 15 September.

If you would like to withdraw your submission or will no longer be able to attend the Global Forum, kindly do let us know.

Best regards,

Caroline Vernaillen
