What Kind of Talk Does Democracy Need? : A Call for Building Local Capacity for Deliberative Practice

This is a video of a presentation summarizing the work of and the theory behind the Colorado State University Center for Public Deliberation. It makes the case for changing the way we talk to each other about difficult issues, and summarizes the key aspects of the deliberative democracy movement.

Recorded at the Poudre River Public Library District as part of a presentation of a series of democratic conversations, this “kick-off talk” was given by Martin Carcasson, a CSU Communications Professor and Director of the Center for Public Deliberation.

The powerpoint for the slides is available at: www.cpd.colostate.edu/whatkindoftalk.pdf. A short essay on the 15 key aspects discussed is available at: www.cpd.colostate.edu/keyaspects.pdf.
