Current & Past Initiatives
We believe that everything we do is praxis, the synergy between theory and practice. Sometimes, one is more foregrounded than the other. CDE is regularly invited on campus and locally to share our expertise and experiences, some of these interactions have lead to deeper longer term foci of the center. Our work has involved several areas of engagement, some highlights include: training of Early Career Scientists, a Neighborhood Summit held in the city of Boulder, a series of workshops on uses and practices of community dialogue, and various projects that address cultures of civic dialogue through process design, facilitation, reporting, and deliberative forums.
