DemocracyNet.eu is back from a fantastic week-end in Yverdon-les Bains!

DemocracyNet.eu was invited by the NGO ICI to create events for the politics week (semaine politique) as part of the participative festival La Derivée. As the key concept of La Derivée is to motivate passers-by from Yverdon and the surroundings to step out of their comfort zones and engage in new activities, a group of DemocracyNet.eu members organized on July 21, 2017, a sort of democratic, discursive experiment with the involvement of local politicians and activists as well as experts from research and city planning, and, most importantly, the public.

“Yverdon-les-Bains demain? Réflexion collective”

The inspiration for this event came from the desire of our hosts, ICI, to act with regards to what they and other people from Yverdon (dis)like about Yverdon-les-Bains and make their city more liveable. We took this specific desire as a starting point for our experiment: How can we make a larger public think and discuss, in a constructive, informed, inclusive and respectful way, about what their city is, and what it could be?

Our sort of deliberative experience took place in several steps. In order to enable the discussion to reflect the concerns of the public, we based our selection of topics for discussion on the inputs of the visitors of La Dérivée who put their ballots into two boxes beginning Thursday, July 20: One of the boxes was labelled with “What I like in Yverdon” and one “What I don’t like in Yverdon”. We gathered about 60 responses during the three days, despite the bad weather.

Inputs from the public

Before the panel discussion on Saturday, July 22, we opened the ballot boxes and put them up on a laundry line once sorted by topics. After their arrival at 5pm, the panel guests and the moderator read, reflected upon, and discussed about the topics that were brought up by the public. This preparation for the panel already led to very interesting first exchanges showing that some of our guests were surprised by the input and other weren’t at all.

These are some of the issues that were brought up: Continue reading »

 

DemocracyNet.eu is back from a fantastic week-end in Yverdon-les Bains!

How do you distract young and older people equally from their Friday evening stroll by the lake in order to engage in reflections about democracy and test their political knowledge? How do you do this without annoying these strollers but ensure they keep a good memory? Well, there is only one possible solution: you let them take part in a Democracy Treasure Hunt, let them build a Democracy Tower and play Henri-Pierre’s notorious Democracy Jenga

“Tour de la démocratie”

This is exactly what happened on July 21, 2017, at the shores of the lake in Yverdon-les-Bains, thanks to a group of DemocracyNet.eu members. DemocracyNet.eu had been invited by the NGO ICI to create events for the politics week (semaine politique) as part of the participative festival La Derivée. As the key concept of La Derivée is to motivate passers-by from Yverdon and the surroundings to step out of their comfort zones and engage in new activities (such as urban gardening, architecture, or essential oils), we sought to do something similar. Our aim was to challenge people’s knowledge about Swiss politics and democracy in general while not make them feel like their holidays were interrupted by an impromptu ‘Political Education’ lesson.
