Workshop: Talking Europe – Using Digitization and Artificial Intelligence for Political Dialogue and Citizenship Education

Ulrich Berger, Diskutier Mit Mir e.V., Germany
Alban Genty, Vote & Vous, France

Opinion bubbles and national narratives shape social discourse throughout Europe. Before the European elections, Talking Europe brought thousands of Europeans together in one-on one talks to discuss politics in an anonymous and secure environment. It did not matter where one lives or what socio-economic background one has. The language barrier is bridged through the use of artificial intelligence to ensure real-time translation.
In this workshop we bring together unique perspectives on how digitisation can be used to promote political dialogue. After a short presentation on the Talking Europe network and the eponymous tool, we will discuss the possibilities of using digital approaches in citizenship education. Together with you, we want to find new perspectives, benefit from your experience as practitioners and co-create new ideas for pan-European projects.
