What I say ... purpose of the engagement:

A highly responsive and participatory interface between the caller(s), the stakeholders and the public

Tuesday, 1 October, 13


No really, the purpose of the engagement version 1.0:

To make visible the collective intelligence of a region in such a way that it transforms civic culture and leadership platforms ... ... so that the directionality of society is re-located into the hands of citizens Tuesday, 1 October, 13


Principles of Engagement

Chaos with just enough order

Builds trust

Transparency and authenticity (eg. what can we change? decision making) Share the necessary information to create informed public debate Compelling messaging, invitation and branding People see themselves in the results - proof is in the pudding We seek out and value collective/public opinion individual voice

Tuesday, 1 October, 13

Makes visible the full spectrum of opinion and perspective Engages broad and diverse demographic and geography People trust invitation from people like them - core team must reflect who you are seeking to engage Integrates expert input, interactive conversation, arts, social media, tangible experience Builds community and raises civic pride Responsive to what is happening in the community, online, in the media


The Different Roles

Iterative Harvest

Tuesday, 1 October, 13


Questions How can civic engagement transform the current culture of leadership/ governance rather than just help it function better? How can events, online and creative engagements provoke people into their own activities? (build a movement) How can we harvest that activity in such a way that it can feed meaningfully back into the public realm and strategically influence decision making? How can we build decision maker accountability into the process? What are the risks of not activating civic engagement for change? What if the greatest innovation in Nova Scotia is not around what topic or the process we use but who we manage to engage? Now we have created a crack in the society here how do we flood it with capacity building for authentic engagement? Tuesday, 1 October, 13
