Reboot2030 was conceived as an international forum for contemporary debate. It was initiated by the Democracy School to promote social innovation at a time of economic, environmental and political crisis.
Each edition of the forum (the plan is to organise one forum per year) consists of two parts: an agenda setting process and thematically structured debates.
The aim of the agenda setting process is to engage internationally with civil society actors in order to jointly develop publicly both the key themes and a framework for the subsequent debates. The aim of the debates is to explore and publicly discuss within the framework provided what a social, economic and political ‘reboot’ should look like, if the overarching objective is to create in all respects a fairer and more sustainable world by 2030 - see Calls for Proposals.
Anyone wishing either to participate in the agenda setting process or to start a discussion within a particular debate is asked to submit a ‘think piece’, a text of up to 1,500 words, either in English or in German (for our German edition), as the basis for a live (streamed) interview.
Authors whose contributions have been cleared for publication will be invited to take part in a live interview, which will be streamed via youtube and facebook and published on the Reboot2030 blog/vlog alongside the respective think piece. If the interest is there, we could also imagine developing some of the think pieces into full-length articles or briefing papers and publishing them, also separately.
Since at the time of writing it was not clear when it will be possible again to safely and reliably stage events offline, Reboot2030 starts online as a digital initiative.
