The Great Debate

The Great Debate



Has democracy failed us or have we all failed democracy?

What can we do about it anyway?

These questions will be debated around the Macedon Ranges at five forums for Democratic Renewal.

April forum speaker was Adam Jacoby from MiVote at Riddells Creek Primary School.

May forum speaker was Professor Lyn Carson from Sydney University at Lansfield

June forum speakers: Annie Bolitho (facilitator of “participatory budgeting at Darebin Council) and Sebastien Klein (President Victorian Local Government Association) at Woodend Primary School.

August Speaker Steb Fisher at Kyneton Secondary College

You get a chance to have your say about local issues that are important to you in group discussions after hearing from the keynote speakers.

A forum for democratic renewal will give more information or call Rob on 54 22 1808.
