Troubleshooting Public Engagement featuring David Kahane
Effective public engagement is critical to the democratic process, yet is often fraught with risk. How do we mitigate those risks and plan for success? What do we do when things go sideways, whether within an engagement process or in ensuring its influence? This inaugural event in the Skillful Engagement series will create space for engagement professionals to explore shared challenges and troubleshoot tricky situations in their current engagement projects. Feature speaker David Kahane will provide insights from recent work by Alberta Climate Dialogue, drawing upon decades of experience investigating democratic theory and deliberative public processes.
