Strengthening democracy and social cohesion in digitization!

New BMBF project at the M2C:



RESet: Digital Resonance Spaces to Strengthen Social Cohesion and Democratic Values

A lack of trust in state institutions, a lack of understanding of social values and, above all, breaks in social cohesion are omnipresent. This development is also reflected in the latest election results at state and federal level. The core idea of the BMBF research project " Exploring and transforming resonant spaces" (RESet), which was launched at the Zentrum für Arbeit und Politik (zap) of the University of Bremen together with the M2C Institute for Applied Media Technology and Culture at the City University of Applied Sciences Bremen (M2C) and the Bildungswerk der Niedersächsischen Wirtschaft (NBW), is to increase people's social participation in a phase of the digital transformation of social environments and to enable them to take a constructive view of society again.

Until the end of 2020, RESet will test possibilities of social participation by means of innovative educational formats and the use of digital tools. RESet is part of the federal initiative "Strengthening cohesion in times of crisis and upheaval". Here, the project focuses on how to deal with current social change and the resulting social challenges.
