Athens Democracy Forum

Since 2017, the Global Liberal Arts Alliance has partnered with Deree-The American College of Greece to participate in the annual Athens Democracy Forum held in Athens, Greece. The Forum is organized by the Democracy and Culture Foundation, in association with the New York Times.

The theme for the 2021 Forum is “After the Storms: From Crisis to Renewal”. Panels and workshops will emphasize the “Do” part of the Democracy and Culture Foundation’s Think-Talk-Do impact chain. Forum sessions will address a range of topics, including:

  • Alternative Tools of Democracy
  • From the Ground Up: New Economic Models
  • Wake Up to Climate Change
  • Disinformation’s Black Hole
  • Rethinking Work
  • Art as Activism
  • Fast-Track Democracies.

Information from previous years can be found at Youth Democracy Forum.

Students from schools in the Global Liberal Arts Alliance are selected through a competitive process. Please see the 2021 Athens Democracy Forum Call for Nominations for information on how to apply.
