Canberra’s Festival of Democracy will involve participants in a deep, rich and respectful conversation that fosters understanding of
· power as a concept
· the different ways to frame power
and exposure to
· the mechanics of power
· effective representation
· improving the legitimacy and accountability of elected representatives
· how people actually make change happen.
We stand for defining the transformational change we want for democracy in Canberra and looking for ways participants might engage in such a change.
We stand for ‘learning through conversation’ as a process to provide Canberrans with a stimulating and engaging event from which plans for further action will arise.
The weekend will involve
· brief speaker sessions
· the sharing of ideas
· learning how to make change happen
· having fun steering transformation that fits into our normal lives.
