The Citizen Engagement group is a practical forum designed to engage participants in sharing, developing and improving knowledge on civic engagement. The group hosts conversation on the group wall through sharing experiences and connecting ideas.
While we know a great deal about citizen engagement, and it is a growing area of research and action, it is not always clear what government can and should do in this regard. Local governments can be active contributors to meaningful citizen engagement, but they must act in partnership with a wide range of other actors.
Within this group participants explore successful pairings of local government citizen engagement activities with organizational goals. All Knowledge Network users interested in this topic are welcome to join the group.
