This afternoon, the Summer Institute of Civic Studies (a seminar of about 18 people) expands into a public conference: Frontiers of Democracy II: Innovations in Civic Practice, Theory and Education. The conference will be live-streamed this Thursday through Saturday so you can watch it at your desk. At its heart will be a diverse set of rehearsed 10-minute talks on aspects of civic studies and democratic renewal, all of which will be live-streamed.
Speakers include grassroots practitioners, elected officials, scholars, civic advocates, a tech developer and more, from the U.S. and abroad. The entire schedule can be seen here.
You can watch and listen online here, as well as participate in the conversation by using the Twitter hashtag #demfront.
Frontiers of Democracy is a collaboration between the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service, the Deliberative Democracy Consortium, and the Democracy Imperative.
