Twentement. A two-day democracy festival like the one organized in Denmark every year (Folkemødet, Bornholm), welcoming tens of thousands of visitors. Twentement will be a festival with debates and lots of other acitivities not only showing the importance but also the fun of democracy. The central theme will be ‘blended democracy’ with a mix of live debates and social media interaction. During the event, also experiments with data monitoring of the crowd take place. Twentement is planned to be held at the Roombeek part of Enschede, close to the university campus.
