Tom Atlee, sage activist and author of Empowering Public WisdomÂ (out now) andÂ The Tao of Democracy (10th anniversary edition out next year), is on a mission to bring the citizen back into democracy through a simple and practical method. The co-director of The Co-Intelligence Institute in Eugene, Oregon, calls for the introduction of citizen councils that offer a platform for â€ścollective intelligence.â€ť This political pioneer shares his views in his new book, Empowering Public Wisdom, and with you in this engaging online seminar from our friends atÂ The Intelligent OptimistÂ magazine (formerlyÂ Ode Magazine) on October 18th, from 5 pm to 6:30 pm, PDT.
In conversation withÂ Ode/Intelligent OptimistÂ founder Jurriaan Kamp, Atlee will discuss:
- Why just casting a vote every two to four years is not enough.
- The value of a knowledgeable public voice in politics and policy-making.
- Practical means for transforming our democratic process for the better.
