Why Democracy Fitness?
Democracy needs active people to be strong
And it’s easier to be active if you have skills and competences. Thats why we exercise!
To participate we need to be strong democrats. To be strong democrats we need awareness of and exercise in democratic values and abilities. Democracy doesn’t fall in your lap by accident. Like the muscles in your body needs exercise to be strong – your democracy muscles also need exercise. This way we will feel more aware and fit to participate in the many democratic processes in our every day lives. Its individual training but alway performed in a group – because democracy always is a collective exercise.
