To encourage an exchange of expertise and strengthen dialogue in the federal programme "Live Democracy", the Forschungsinstitut Betriebliche Bildung (f-bb) [Research Institute for Vocational Training in Enterprises] was commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth represented by the Federal Office for the Family and Civil Society Tasks (BAFzA) to implement the "Live Democracy!" forum.
The "Live Democracy!" forum acts as a platform for specialist dialogue and exchange for everyone involved in the programme. It provides support for specialist needs-based networking and the specialist exchange between the participants in the federal programme. Furthermore, the forum organises and coordinates the events in the various areas of the programme.
In addition to this, the forum helps to identify and process relevant programme results and the latest discussions and supports specialist discussions beyond the limits of the programme.
