Civic and Social Connectedness
Presented by: Leadership Austin and The Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life at the University of Texas
Each day more and more citizens feel a lack of engagement and unresponsive action to their concerns by the community around them. What we know is that when levels of political participation, civic involvement, and social connectedness are relatively high, a community enjoys the benefits of civic health. This professional development opportunity is designed to provide attendees with current trends, interactive strategies and actions that can be used in overcoming obstacles to civic engagement.
Representing Leadership Austin: Christopher Kennedy & Julie Smith.
