On the occasion of the publication of the children’s book “Red and Blue”, the World Human Forum and Nefeli Publishing are organising “A Red and Blue discussion on Democracy”. On the 20th of January, the day of President Biden’s inauguration, at 15:00 CET, international speakers from the fields of education, classics, arts, science and activism are going to engage in an exciting discussion on the notion of Democracy, the importance of educating the youth around related topics and also the role that each and every one of us, as active citizens, can play in the creation of a better future for all.
The event is going to be quite symbolically anchored in Athens, the birthplace of Democracy.
These turbulent times we live in keep reminding us of the dangers of a segregated society, with its citizens splitting up between “blue” and “red” sides. This book from Venezuela comes to shed light on a side we sometimes forget. The necessity of coexisting, of finding common ground, the importance of reconciliation and the essence of Democracy. In Democracy there must be no winners and losers, if our aim is for society to win as a whole. How can we achieve that? Join us in the discussion to find out.
