Description: 

Public participation in government is an essential part of our democratic tradition. Local government, as the government closest to the people, is uniquely positioned to rehabilitate our democratic capacities. However, the conventional approach to public engagement is often painful for all involved and produces little useful insight for decision making. Fortunately, it doesn't need to be that way. At this session you will hear from local governments who have used unconventional models of public engagement. You will learn what they did, how it helped them, and how you can do the same for your community.
