Dans son intervention au TEDxHousesofParliament, en juin dernier, Rory Stewart appelle à l’action afin de rétablir la démocratie, à commencer par reconnaître pourquoi la démocratie est importante – non comme un outil, mais comme un idéal.
“If democracy is to be rebuilt … it is necessary not just for the public to learn to trust their politicians, but for the politicians to learn to trust the public.”
TEDxHousesofParliament happened on June 22nd and delved into democracy in ways which surprised, delighted and challenged the audience. The day began in the historic Banqueting House on Whitehall, location of the execution of Charles I, and finished in the Palace of Westminster. 23 performers and speakers appeared on the TEDxHousesofParliament Stage in front of an audience of 400 people.
