openDemocracy is partnering with the World Forum for Democracy 2016, to draw inspiration from a wide range of innovative grassroots and political initiatives worldwide, and kick-start the debate on what education can do for democracy and what democracy can do for education.
Democracies contain a promise of equitable education opportunities. But social divides persist, and are even growing worldwide. Is education fulfilling its democratic mission or is it failing to build the key qualities for democratic citizenship? How can education not only preach but also practice democracy, nurturing active citizens with critical and analytical skills? How can teachers, learners, families, civil society organisations, public authorities, and the media foster this?
