15: Digital Democracy Lab (Part of Alpbach Learning Missions)

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
in englischer Sprache

Working in teams, participants in the Digital Democracy Lab will investigate why anti-democratic, authoritarian movements are thriving online in Europe and around the world. They will attempt to launch online creative communities that champion democracy with equal energy and, most importantly, also fun. Participants will bring creativity, passion, facts and humour to the conversation, empowered and amplified by graphic designers and experienced digital strategists.

After the Seminar Week, this seminar will turn into an Alpbach Learning Mission (ALM).

 Zack Exley is the co-founder of Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats, campaigns to elect young new leaders from outside of politics to Congress. One of their successful candidates was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Zack also founded New Consensus, a non-partisan think tank that develops policy and research to fuel the big dreams of a new generation of leaders. In 2016, Zack served as a senior adviser on the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and was an architect of the campaign's national volunteer-driven "distributed" campaign. Zack was an early pioneer in online political organizing and communications with MoveOn.org and the Howard Dean and John Kerry presidential campaigns.

With Becky Bond, Zack co-authored the book Rules for Revolutionaries, How Big Organizing can Change Everything, to capture lessons from distributed organizing on the Bernie campaign. Recently, as a Harvard Shorenstein Fellow, Zack published a paper on the power of the Alt-Right on YouTube, "The Anatomy of the Worldview of an Alt-Right YouTuber."
