PEOPLE DIALOGUE FESTIVAL: BRINGING POLITICIANS AND CITIZENS TOGETHER

About PDF

The People Dialogue Festival is the first event of its kind  held in Kenya, with voting citizens from all levels of society coming together to participate in the democratisation process, through a series of interactive and structured conversations on a range of governance, social and economic issues.

PDF enables citizens to have a say in their country’s democratisation process, by bringing people with very different viewpoints together in dialogue, where it aims to further cement stability and reconciliation in Kenya.

People’s Meetings

Modelled on the “People’s Meetings” held by countries such as Sweden and Denmark, the People Dialogue Festival aims to provide an even platform for all these participants. Through this, it will give voters a chance to connect with leaders so they can plan Kenya’s democratic future together.

The need for public consensus behind Kenyan reforms is essential if they are to stand the test of time, and the People Dialogue Festival acts as the opportunity to forge this much-needed public support.
