Canadian Book Launch: “Rekindling Democracy”

September 16, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This event has now passed. You can watch the recording of the event here.

Date: 16/9/2020
Time: 1-2pm EDT

As we look at community recovery planning across Canada, many organizations are asking what their role is in deepening community and how they can support citizens to build community. In his new book, Rekindling Democracy- A Professional’s Guide to Working in Citizen Space, Cormac Russell stipulates that organizations and professionals are not the solution to community problems, it is citizens who must be at the centre of any authentic and powerful democratic response to challenges.

Join our discussion with Cormac about his book. Cormac will also explore the shift from citizen-centred community development approaches to top-down institution-centred ones, and how we can challenge the status quo in order to reboot democracy.

This webinar is brought to you by the Tamarack’s ABCD Community Of Practice and Cities Deepening Community Team.
