Register for Frontiers of Democracy 2015, June 25-27!

It’s time to start gearing up again for this year’s Frontiers of Democracy conference in Boston, MA this June 25th-27th! This annual conference brings together leaders in deliberative democracy and civic education to explore ideas at the forefront of advancing democracy, and we highly recommend you join us there. Our director, Sandy Heierbacher, will certainly be attending, now that she’s based in Boston!

Tufts-logoFrontiers of Democracy is sponsored by Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University, The Democracy Imperative, and the Deliberative Democracy Consortium, all of which have NCDD members in their leadership.

The organizers describe the conference this way:

While powerful forces work against justice and civil society around the world, committed and innovative people strive to understand and improve citizens’ engagement with government, with community, and with each other. Every year, Frontiers of Democracy convenes some of these practitioners and scholars for organized discussions and informal interactions.

Topics include deliberative democracy, civil and human rights, social justice, community organizing and development, civic learning and political engagement, the role of higher education in democracy, Civic Studies, media reform and citizen media production, civic technology, civic environmentalism, and common pool resource management. Devoted to new issues and innovative solutions, this conference is truly at the frontiers of democracy.

You can learn more by visiting the conference website at http://activecitizen.tufts.edu/civic-studies/frontiers and register here. Registration is only $240, and just $120 for students.

We know this conference will be a great space for NCDD members to be, and we hope to see you there!
