Trent University presents the Chancellor’s Lecture Series, ‘New Ideas for a Connected Planet: Government & Democracy in the Networked Age.’ This is a ‘free’ public lecture.
Don Tapscott, one of the world’s leading authorities on innovation, media, and the economic and social impact of technology will speak at this free lecture. Dr. Tapscott is listed as the 4th most influential management thinker alive as noted by ‘Thinkers50.’ He was appointed Chancellor of Trent University in 2013 and is an Adjunct Professor of Management at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, and the inaugural fellow at the Martin Prosperity Institute.
His lecture will discuss Government & Democracy in the Networked Age …
To achieve social cohesion, good government and shared norms, the new realities demand a second wave of democracy based on a culture of public deliberation and active citizenship. This is not direct democracy: it is about a new model of citizen engagement and politics appropriate for the 21st century. What are the new models of democracy? What’s the case to move to a second era of democracy? How would it work? Key challenges?
