Santa Cruz County #citizenscouncil public event
January 12 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Santa Cruz County Citizens Council
A #WeThePeople Process using Dynamic Facilitation
First up: Once Upon a Rail Corridor…
This Saturday evening is a limited capacity [50 Eventbrite tickets make up the total] public event.
A Community Conversation phenomenon.
It’s an opportunity both to see what we’re doing with Center for Wise Democracy toward generating a more participatory democracy in our County, and to learn what this first Santa Cruz County citizens council concluded from their 2-day intensive on this ~rail corridor~ hot button issue, and for all of us to then speak to that...
Note that the ‘council’ is a symbolic representation of #WeThePeople comprised of between 11-16 randomly selected citizens drawn from North/South County voter rolls. Having delivered their conclusions, the council disbands; the work of the council is done (subsequent issues convene a new random selection).
This model is as known as the ‘Wisdom Council Process’ #WCP based on Center for Wise Democracy, founder Jim Rough’s work and original publication, Society’s Breakthrough; Releasing Essential WISDOM and Virtue in All People .
Tom Atlee, founder of the Co-Intelligence Institute: “In the hands of a skilled facilitator, Dynamic Facilitation is the most potent process I know for transmuting intractable conflicts into breakthrough insights, solutions and possibilities.”
There is no charge to attend this event AND we will ‘pass the hat’ on Saturday night.
This event will be livestreamed.
