Your answer
What lack of choice in people’s lives would you like to address with your project?
Your answer
Explain why offering that choice is important.
Your answer
What root cause would you tackle in order to allow that choice?
Your answer
How would you characterise the root cause?
Required
Can you elaborate on this characterization?
Your answer
Does the root cause (constraint) offer some advantages?
The root cause might allow for a number of individual choices exceeding the ones that it prevents. For instance, mandatory health check-ups is a constraint that is limiting people's freedom, but it arguably offers people more choices by increasing their lifespan.
Your answer
How do you plan to tackle the root cause?
Conciliation is recommended when the constraint cannot be dismantled, or is considered to offer overall more individual choices than its dismantling.
Explain how your project will either promote (multi-)competition or conciliation.
Your answer
Free will can’t be achieved by imposing one’s views. Explain how your project will promote pluralism without imposing any personal view.
Your answer
