The Yin and Yang of Civic Engagement and How Everything Connects.
Yin and yang. The principle that all things exist as inseparable and contradictory opposites. If you’ve embraced a civic cause it’s likely you did so because it meant something to you personally.
Often, civic engagement is focused on fighting back while at the same time pushing forward. But, why do people get involved? What makes some people finish dinner and head out to a community meeting? Or to send an email to a Councillor. Or work to get people to sign a petition?
This show is also about systems thinking and about implications. About how one thing affects another, and so on.
By believing and understanding and leveraging the idea of everything connects, we ensure that everyone is connected.
Yin. Yang. Connectivity. Implications. Change. All on this episode of The Cityist.
