Digital Democracy Chat with Chris Quigley, Delib
when: Thursday, 1 March 2012 from 2:30 to 4:00pm

How are digital tools being used to connect more people more directly to decision-making processes?
Join this special event to hear from digital democracy pioneer Chris Quigley, Co-Founder of Delib, a UK-based online engagement firm with experience working with governments in Canada, the United States, Australia and United Kingdom.
Chris will present about Delib’s online engagement tools, big ideas and big vision to improve government. We’ll then open up the discussion to share views, ideas and experiences.
This event is brought to you by Susanna Haas Lyons and Simon Fraser University’s Community Education Program, which offers the Certificate in Dialogue and Civic Engagement.
