Deep Democracy | Young Impactmakers


Powerful group decisions are often the result of combining individual knowledge, talents, experiences and emotions. During this Young Impactmakers event, you will learn about the basics of the Deep Democracy method and get the opportunity to practice a few techniques to help harvest the full potential of any group you work with.

Deep Democracy is a group decision-making method that enables all voices to be heard.

Differences of opinion are inevitable in a group. Deep Democracy values these differing opinions and is all about incorporating the wisdom of the minority in decision making. Varying opinions are not seen as an obstacle, but as an opportunity and the start of a creative process. This method offers tools and techniques to deal with extremes.

Amir is drive is to initiate and facilitate meetings and conversations that give meaning. Conversations where a deeper layer emerges, where new insights are discovered through the joint search, and where a connection arises between people who seemed to be far apart. In this way Amir helps large and small groups organize lasting change, with the hope that they will become resilient communities. Amir is trained in using the Deep Democracy method to facilitate meaningful discussions.

Laura believes that individuals naturally feel a need for contribution and meaning in their lives. Through her work Laura provides tools and programs to support individuals in this journey of self discovery and empowerment and support organisations and companies in creating an environment where fulfillment, purpose and contribution are the driving forces.
