Building Relationships in-between projects: the IAP2 October Webinar
Public participation efforts tend to be geared towards specific projects, but there are benefits to keeping citizens engaged even between those projects. For the IAP2 October Webinar – Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 2:00 pm Eastern Time – Dr. John Stephens and Dr. Rick Morse of the School of Government at the University of North Carolina will discuss their work in raising the volume of the citizen’s voice.
You’ll hear from some of the bloggers themselves, “ordinary” citizens, sharing opinions and insights: why do they do it? What do they get out of it?
You’ll also learn about the experience with “Citizen Academies”, letting citizens in on the workings of public institutions. And you’ll get some answers to the big question: does this improve the level and quality of citizen engagement?
We hope you’ll join us for “Getting Engaged / Staying Engaged”, Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 2:00 pm Eastern time.
