Join the Mayor in recognizing Goldenites who have contributed greatly to making a difference in the community. Following the presentation of the awards, we are pleased to introduce Dr. Martín Carcasson as the evening’s keynote speaker.
Martín Carcasson, Ph.D., is a professor in the Communication Studies department of Colorado State University (CSU), the founder and director of the CSU Center for Public Deliberation (CPD), which was recently awarded a “Civvy” Award in Washington, D.C. as a national example of a best practice in civic collaboration and collective action. Dr. Carcasson’s research focuses on helping local communities address “wicked problems” more productively through improved public communication, community problem solving, and collaborative decision-making. The CPD is a practical, applied extension of his work, and functions as an impartial resource dedicated to enhancing local democracy in Northern Colorado. Dr. Carcasson and the staff train students to serve as impartial facilitators, who then work with local governments, school boards, and community organizations to design, facilitate, and report on innovative projects and events on key community issues.
Dr. Carcasson will talk about how conversations between neighbors, and strong community dedication to deliberate engagement, can result in respectful and collaborative community results.
There is no need to RSVP for this free event. Simply come and celebrate the contributions of members of the Golden community!
