Once a democratic system is achieved, its consolidation and maturity will happen when the people start to acquire abilities much deeper than the rule of majority, incluiding important thinking abilities. Which are these thinking abilities and thinking dispositions? What role do they play in present democracies and how can they be developed as an integral part of democracy?

I'm also really looking forward to the discussion of how we educate our young people for more robust participation in democratic processes. Our national curriculum aspires for all young people in New Zealand to be 'confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners". It sounds good but how do we get beyond rhetoric and make it really happen?

In order to move forward and create constructive communities within a democracy a great deal of empathy , tolerance , creative and critical thinking is required. Through education much can be achieved teaching children these skills, also the Arts function as a constructive way to question and reflect on what is going on in our world .
