In 2017 four events will be presented by Aarhus 2017 and Clement Kjersgaard at Aarhus Theatre.
The world faces big challenges ahead and disagreement on how to deal with them is present. Which problems are the most important ones? What is the right solution to the problems? Who is responsible for taking thoughts into action?
Clement Kjersgaard will appear in Aarhus Theatre on four days in 2017 and change it into a community hall when gathering a variety of guests, on stage and in the hall. The afternoons start off by discussing global perspectives and continue into a more local context in the night.
The first event will be on Sunday, 26. February, under the title: Will Democracy win?
At the events you have the chance to meet the following people:
EU Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, professor Svend Brinkmann, professor Katherine Richardson, author Carsten Jensen, historian and radio host Michael Jalving Professor Willerslev, journalist Noah Redington, former. EU Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, activist Micah White and the President of Iceland pirate party Birgitta Jonsdottir. Professor and author of the book The Precariat - The new dangerous class, Guy Standing and Jan Verner-Müller author of the book What Is populism?
All debates last from 13.00 - 21.30 at Aarhus Theatre with a dinner break at 17-18.30 (although food is not included in the price).
