Democracy Is A Powerful Idea, but How Do We Make It Happen? Let’s Work Together And Make It Part of Our Daily Lifestyle

In today’s world, democracy is under attack from many directions – from dictatorships to corporations to social media algorithms. But it can also be undermined by our own actions or inactions – like when we don’t vote or take part in public life.

Democracy is an idea that has been around for centuries and continues to inspire people today. But what does it mean? What are its principles? How can you apply them in your life or work? We’re here to help answer those questions and more with our knowledge base, which includes best-practices from around the globe as well as lessons from experts and practitioners in democracy.

At Lifestyle Democracy you will find actionable steps for how to make democracy happen today or strategic steps for the future so you can create a better world through applying democratic principles.

If we want to live in a democracy, we must practice it on a daily basis. Democracy must be a lifestyle, not a rare occurrence.

Stefan Ivanovski, Founder of Lifestyle Democracy

You deserve the opportunity to be an active participant in democracy – not just on election day or when there’s some crisis.

Why Is It Important To Democratize Our Lifestyle?

1. Democracy is a work in progress. Democracy is about empowering individuals and communities without harming others. It took over 2,000 years since the Athenian democracy for women to have the right to vote. Let’s not spend another 2,000 years to empower the disempowered.

2. Democracy requires regular practice. Just like going to the Olympic games once every 4 years does not make one an Olympic athlete, the same way one does not become a democratic citizen by voting once every 4 years. If we want to live in a democracy, we must practice it on a daily basis. Democracy must be a lifestyle, not a rare occurrence. Let’s learn how to apply democracy today!

3. Democratization is a process without an end. Our understanding of democracy needs to adapt to the changes of the present. Let us discover the democracy of the future by learning from the trendsetters and practicing it today.

4. Democracy is a community effort. The same way it is easier to spend the good and bad times in life with friends, it is easier to ride the bumpy waves of democratization together. Let’s work together as a community to build a better democracy!

5. Democracy requires long-term commitment and support. Democracy is a long-term game. Just like any initiative, the sustainability of democracy depends on the support it receives. We need to commit to and invest in democracy if we want to have healthier, stronger and sustainable democracies. Committing to and investing in Lifestyle Democracy means you are supporting the work of collecting global knowledge on democratizing our lifestyles and distilling it into actionable steps.
