Community members have an important role to play in naming the issues that affect them and in co-creating solutions. Yet civic engagement processes can all too easily force residents to look at problems from the perspective of government policies and structures in ways that create barriers to participation. How can governments create more intentional space to surface issues and enable local problem solving? And how can they place citizens at the centre of this conversation in ways that harness the energy and knowledge that community members offer?
Join Valerie Lemmie, Director of Exploratory Research at Kettering Foundation at the SFU Centre for Dialogue's annual Bruce and Lis Welch Community Dialogue for a free public dialogue examining the complementary roles that citizens and governments can play in co-producing solutions to the problems that matter most.
