How can we ensure participatory democracy? We’ve seen time and again that many problems occur when citizens are not paying attention and not engaging with local politics - in part because, how do we?
The Center for Wise Democracy hopes to spark a movement, starting here in Asheville, through a series of workshops, events and our first Wisdom Council. These are initial experiments with the long-term goal of spreading across North Carolina by 2015 and across the United States by 2016, and already implement in parts of central Europe.
On this night, we will fulfill ourselves with wonderful food and networking, and also engage in a discussion on the question, "What topic would you like to see the First Wisdom Council of Asheville address?" Kerry Lindsey will facilitate using Dynamic Facilitation, and who knows where it will lead!
