ABCD videoThe Alberta Climate Dialogue just released a series of short videos exploring the benefits of deliberative democracy, featuring well known practitioners such as Matt Leighninger (DDC), Janette Hartz-Karp (Curtin University), Edward Andersson (Involve UK) and others. These insightful snapshots of public engagement knowledge and case studies are a valuable resource for communicating deliberative democracy ideas to others:

These presentations were timely contributions to the City of Edmonton’s explorations on how public engagement can contribute to the City’s strategic environmental plan, The Way We Green. Watch these presentations by an elected official and senior administrator:

Finally, here are some introductory and summary remarks for the presentations:

Many thanks to Mary Pat MacKinnon of Ascentum who played a pivotal role in designing and facilitating the day, with support of the ABCD team.

    Thanks, Susanna. These videos were captured in the course of an excellent learning/planning day held by Alberta Climate Dialogue, the Centre for Public Involvement, and the City of Edmonton. The day as a whole was brilliantly designed and delivered by a team led by Mary Pat MacKinnon (Ascentum).
