Online Dialogue on Issues Facing the Nation's Charter Schools

Laurie Maak sent me this announcement the other day: Next week, June 7-10, USCharterschools.org is hosting an online dialogue about key issues facing the nation’s charter schools.

Peter Levine's Blog Entry on the September Project

I’ve posted about the September Project already, but Peter Levine’s blog May 10 blog entry about the project is more detailed that mine… so here it is. Peter starts by saying “The September Project is a great idea for promoting public deliberation. Libraries across the country will hold public discussions on the third anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. The library systems that have already signed up are shown on this map.” Click below to read his full blog entry, or go to www.peterlevine.ws/mt/ to check […] (continue)

Democracy In America Convention to Take Place this August

The Convention will take place this August 19-22 in Springfield, Illinois, and it will bring together people from all 50 states to “ignite the unified voice of ‘We the People'” through dialogue and deliberation.

"Let's Talk America" Featured in Current Utne Magazine

NCDD has been working with the Utne Institute, Conversation Cafe and The World Cafe to organize a nation-wide dialogue called “Let’s Talk America.” LTA is featured in the March/April Utne that I just received in my mailbox this morning, and I encourage all of you to go out and get this month’s Utne if you’re not a subscriber. A very cool 2-page ad (p. 48-49) with a red background encourages people to participate in this “new nationwide movement to revitalize our democracy.” And on pages […] (continue)

Second National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation to be Held this October

NCDD’s 2004 conference will take place in Denver, Colorado, October 23-25 at Regis University. We plan to have this conference surpass the groundbreaking 2002 conference in every way – in numbers, in quality, in networking opportunities, in learning and skill-building. Like our first conference, the 2004 conference will be planned as collaboratively and creatively as possible, and your input and involvement are more than welcome. Go to www.thataway.org/conference/2004/index.html for more info. (continue)
