Synopsis

This fast-paced, interactive workshop will introduce you to innovative tools and insightful practices for bringing your city’s civic engagement strategy into the 21st century.  Local government works better when it is open to the ideas and talents of citizens and starts with the assumption that citizen collaboration is a force for good. Citizens have deep expertise in their own lives and in what’s best for their families and communities – and their expertise can be leveraged to deliver better services and solve public problems. Citizen contributions can take many forms, from defining and prioritizing problems to generating ideas to volunteering their time, creativity, and expertise.
