Online talks

Post by Fishnut » Fri Apr 16, 2021 4:20 pm

I know we have a thread for public science lectures online but thought I'd make one for non-science stuff that might be of interest.

Bristol Ideas (formerly Bristol Festival of Ideas) have just put up a talk with Amy Slipowitz called Why is Democracy in Decline and What Do We Do About It?. From the email blurb,
Amy Slipowitz (Research Manager for, and co-writer of, Freedom in the World 2021) takes us on a wide-ranging journey looking at the state of democracy in many countries, including China, Hong Kong, Belarus, Ethiopia, the UK, Russia, India. She explores the devastating impact the coronavirus response has had on global freedom and examines some good news stories from Malawi, Sudan, and Taiwan. She outlines what governments, civil society and individuals can do to protect and extend democracy as well as the need for an expanded role for civics education.
it's okay to say "I don't know"
