The democracy muscles

 
 

Democracy is not something that falls into our lap by accident– it is something we need to train and evaluate in our day-to-day. Therefore we have identified a number of democracy muscles and developed training programs that will make us more fit to democracy. Each muscle only takes 30 minutes to activate and when we are done, you will always remember that you and others have this muscle!
Remember, it is allowed to have fun in exercising your democracy muscles, but it must also be a bit difficult. If not, you will not get better at democracy. If it hurts a bit, it is a good sign you are executing the exercises correctly!
