Title:
Das Sprachrohr - The Speaking Tube

Author:
Fanny Mayer and Elena Huening

Description:
A 'speaking tube', is used to amplify the sound, in our case the voices of the citizens. The pandemic raises the question of how resilient our democratic system is. Do we have to adapt to be more crisis-resistant? Our given situation requires an evermore critical public. But how can the voices be heard when assemblies can't take place any more? Maybe it is time to think about new ways for citizens' participation. Our idea is to ask the people on the streets at an attended wagon with a symbolic speaking tube on the roof. By doing so we can reach a broader cross-section of the population, collect opinions on certain topics and then formulate the goals, e.g. in form of public petitions. The 'speaking tube' makes a contribution to a more resilient city. Past experience shows that often significant changes in politics were initiated by engaged citizens. By facilitating the process we pave the way to a more grass-roots democracy.
