Democracy Every Day: Discussion and Decision Models for Young People and Adults.
Kjaergaard, Eigil; Martineniene, Rima
Real democracy is a style of living and thinking, in which every step refers to the principle of equality among people. This guide seeks to show models that can help people, especially young people, learn to live democratically. The guide notes that young people cannot learn democracy without continually, from the earliest years, living in democratic surroundings, practicing their own influence, participating when decisions are made, and sharing responsibility for their outcomes. It stresses staff training, communication among adults and youth, and definition of roles. The guide presents the following discussion and decision models: "Active Meeting"; "Future Workshop"; "Cafe Discussion"; "Fish Ball"; "Lemniscat"; and "Combined System." (BT)
