Why do you believe innovations in participatory democracy are important?

I believe that with new technologies and new generations that are coming, it’s important to have innovative ways of promotion and participation of democracy. USAID project “Regeneration” and me as Ambassador of reconciliation in that project is innovative way for youth reconciliation because it connects film art and youth activism so it can be easier and more creative to counter and fight prejudice, segregation, nationalism etc.

What do you hope to see at the 2018 Innovations in Participatory Democracy Conference?

I hope I will have chance to meet a lot people that will inspire me with their work, and I hope I can present my work and work of our project to as many people as possible.
