  • What are the key features of a thriving democracy?

  • What knowledge and skills do people need to help create and contribute to a thriving democracy?

  • How can we foster the acquisition and development of the knowledge and skills necessary for a thriving democracy?

  • How can we cultivate environments that support learning that enable a thriving democracy?
