Organized under the theme “Radical Democracy”, the Summer School brought together leading experts, researchers and graduate students and community leaders, activists and practitioners for a week of pedagogically innovative workshops, discussion, dialogue, community events and field trips.

There were 33 students registered (22 non-credit and 10 credit) from programs ranging in political science, philosophy, communications, sociology, cultural studies, humanities, arts and science, anthropology, economics, environment, health, science and related disciplines at the Undergraduate, Masters and PhD levels. Several participants work in civil society with organizations working on climate change, community development, and poverty reduction. Together, with the Summer School team and 29 invited guest faculty, artists, and practitioners, they explored what it means to re-imagine, research and practice radical democracy in their communities and in everyday life.
