Presented by PACE: Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, National Civic League, and PublicDecisions
Local governments today are mobilizing citizens in innovative ways to set priorities, make decisions, resolve conflicts and solve critical community problems.
While many of these instances are driven by fiscal realities, these innovations are opening the door to new ways of thinking about how local governments fulfill short- and long-term community goals.
Based on research sponsored by PACE, this PublicForum webinar will focus on the four key innovations that are changing how communities plan and make decisions today:
In this 90-minute webinar, NCL's Mike McGrath will briefly present findings from the recent PACE report and then lead a discussion with panelists Amalia Alarcón de Morris, Derek Okubo and Ed Everett about current innovations in engagement practice at the local government level. You'll hear key 'lessons learned' and gain tips for implementing similar initiatives in your own community. Bring your questions and join us for this insightful discussion!
Moderated by Mike McGrath, Senior Editor at the National Civic League.
