Tonight!!!! Public Issues - Civil Discourse
Join us for a public forum on....public forums! The Public Issues Forum has tremendous expertise on public discussions - present options, frame the issue, have moderated discussions and try to find some common ground.
The March event will look at four approaches to improving civil discourse:
Approach 1: Develop and Enforce Community Norms for Civic Discourse. We need to let each other know when we've crossed the line.
Approach 2: Educate for Citizenship. Successful citizenship requires skills that must be taught and nurtured.
Approach 3: Political and Institutional Reform. Many of our current structures encourage partisanship and hinder our ability to find common ground.
Approach 4: A more responsible media. The media has a public trust to promote reasoned and constructive discourse.
Join the discussion on Thursday, March 31 at 6:30 PM at Schlow Centre Region Library. Please register by calling 231-1062.
