Kone Foundation arranged a Well evening event on 5 February, and the theme of the event was Is this democracy, or is it an illusion? How does deliberation function as a part of democratic decision-making? Forming a basis for the discussion were the euthanasia and deliberative democracy themes from a research project led by Harri Raisio with funding from Kone Foundation, in particular the challenges and possibilities of deliberative democracy. Kone Foundation will arrange these Well events a couple of times a year to provide people from various fields with the opportunity to discuss a topical theme. The purpose of the Well is to provide opportunities for discussion and the creation of bold initiatives.
