What do climate action, local economies, citizen engagement, mindfulness, equality, community, rule of law, and freedom of speech all have in common? Democracy! And our schools and communities are where it all begins.
Our future depends on nurturing a healthy and vibrant democracy, and leaders who exercise their ‘democratic jurisdiction’. Join us in deepening democracy.
Join us at our Centre for Civic Governance Forum for Progressive Governance in Harrison Hot Springs, Friday March 22 – Saturday March 23, 2013.
