The Transfomative Leadership Centre logo.

We have just received a reminder from Melissa Abramovitz that the call for workshop proposals for the Learning Democracy by Doing conference closes at the end of this month. This international conference organized by the Transformative Learning Centre (TLC) Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto (OISE/UT) focuses on alternative practices in citizenship learning and participatory democracy and will be held October 16-18, 2008 at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto.

From the Transformative Learning Centre website:

We are interested in attracting presentations that examine past or present innovative  and progressive practices of transformative citizenship learning and participatory democracy in different settings including formal and  non-formal educational institutions, civil society organizations, municipal governments and workplaces. We encourage presentations  that pay attention to the strengths as well as to the weaknesses of those initiatives, placing them in their particular social and  historical contexts.

Deadline for submissions of proposals is December 31, 2007. Please submit your abstract by email in the body of the message to Nelson Rosales, TLC 2008 conference coordinator tlc2008@oise.utoronto.ca. More information about the event can be found at their website, http://tlc.oise.utoronto.ca.
