Welcome to this VR After Party for the first Summit for Democracy to be held on December 9-10!
This is an unaffiliated event hosted by VR Democracy and the Global Democracy Initiative. "The aim of the Global Democratic Initiative is to conceptualise and implement a global democratic system to find global solutions for today’s global challenges."
Key Information about the Summit for Democracy:
On December 9-10, 2021, President Biden will host the first of two Summits for Democracy, which will bring together leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector to set forth an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal and to tackle the greatest threats faced by democracies today through collective action.
The Summit will provide an opportunity to reflect, listen, and learn, as well as to plan and act, so that we can build a shared foundation for global democratic renewal.
In advance of the first summit, we are consulting with experts from government, multilateral organizations, philanthropies, civil society, and the private sector to solicit bold, practicable ideas around three key themes:
- Defending against authoritarianism
- Addressing and fighting corruption
- Advancing respect for human rights
“Democracy doesn’t happen by accident. We have to defend it, fight for it, strengthen it, renew it.” President Joseph R. Biden, JR. February 2021
