Future Democracy Beyond XR: How should the future democracy hub begin to reach beyond the XR network?
FDH exists to embed democratic practices in the DNA of wider society - not just within XR. To that end, we’d like to encourage local groups to start hosting democratic sessions for their communities/towns etc. seeking diverse and inclusive attendance... and this might be more readily achievable if we remove the “XR” branding from these sessions, but keep the “climate and ecological emergency” context. (Because while XR is aiming for 3.5%, any project worth the name “Future Democracy” will always be aiming for 100% ;) )
Perhaps we could keep the “future democracy hub” branding and explain it as an “offshoot” of XR... just thinking aloud here!
What might be discussed in these sessions?
What concrete outcomes might they have ?
