Citizen Participation in Public Life


Richard C. Harwood, Founder and President of The Harwood Institue for Public Innovation

Host: David Inge

We are often told that Americans have given up on politics. But, if they have, it’s not because they don’t care. We’ll talk with someone who has spent the last 20 years helping individuals and organizations identify the issues that matter most in their communities. Our guest will be Richard Harwood, founder of the Harwood Institute.  We’ll  talk about the ongoing work of the Institute--encouraging people to think differently about politics and public life. He'll tell us about some of the comments he heard in listening sessions in communities across the country, including ours.

This is a repeat broadcast from Wednesday, January 25, 2012, 10 am
