As many of you know, the Canadian Community for Dialogue and Deliberation (C2D2) is holding its second conference this November in Vancouver, BC, Canada. From Nov 12-14, the conference will gather D&D practitioners, researchers and policymakers to talk about the theme “Facing Complex Issues Together.” (Check out the program at: http://www.c2d2.ca/default.aspx?DN=707,699,32,Documents). The early bird registration discount, which reduces conference fees by $100, ends on September 30th — so now is the time to register!
C2D2 was inspired by the work of NCDD, and the two organizations continue to have strong ties: at the C2D2 conference NCDD’s own Sandy H. will be convening a discussion on choosing the right D&D method, and yours truly will convene a couple of discussions about how the staff of the Ontario & BC Citizens’ Assemblies on Electoral Reform tackled the complex task of designing a new electoral system. I look forward to seeing many of you in Vancouver!
