A POSSIBLE WAY FOR DISCUSSING OUR COMMON ISSUES
PO: Public Opinion
PO’s mission is to root a progressive public forum in Pécs. To discuss in a cultured way social issues and concrete matters of current concern to our city, within the framework of participation, inside and beyond the bubble.
DIALOGUE – ENCOUNTER – PARTICIPATION
For free speech
PO provides a community experience that encourages free expression rather than repression. Accessible to all, it is a niche and ground-breaking forum for debate that connects city residents and creates a public space. Participants can openly and freely express their views on issues affecting their local community. PO creates community.
We talked about it
Global issues – local dimension
The topics of PO are a selection of the phenomena and aspects of Hungarian society that live with us. An important aspect is that the given topics have a connection to Pécs, a projection and a field of interpretation.
PO has two seasons a year, one in the spring and one in the autumn, four to four times a season.
In the first half of the PO, participants are asked to draw an imaginary line of opinion on five statements.
The optimum number of participants in a PO is 35-40.
Each speaker has sixty seconds to ask questions, respond, argue or express their views.
