Alexis de Tocqueville believed that political freedom is difficult to achieve, and long term modern states risk losing their democracy without an engaged citizenry.
Tocqueville first visited America in 1831 and one of the particulars he found most promising in the new “upstart” was the value Civic Associations play in organizing and promoting the needs of the citizen.
This week we will cast our lens directly on role of Community, not only defining what role Community Organisations play in today’s society, but ask critical questions about the future of Community through the venue of Social Media, for example. This should be of particular interest to you my fellow citizen.
