You’ve got a voice, and we’ll give you a micro-phone. You know about the needs in your community, and we’ll give you an online forum. You’ve got ideas on how to improve our country, and we’ll give you an invitation to join our discussion. And you’ve got opinions about the upcoming election, and we’ll give you OUR EARS!
That’s what the upcoming AgendaCamps are all about. Put together by the people behind The Agenda with Steve Paikin, AgendaCamps are interactive participant-led events focused around the 2011 provincial election. The AgendaCamp format includes parallel discussion sessions in small groups throughout the day, all centered around the issues that YOU want to talk about! What issues would you like politicians and the media to address in 2011 election? What are some of the difficulties facing your community? What are your concerns for the future of Canada?
AgendaCamps are happening throughout the next 6 months 5 cities throughout Ontario (Ottawa, Hamilton, Niagara Falls, Sudbury and Toronto). The kick-off Camp is happening on February 27th in Ottawa, with a live taping of the “Agenda on the Road” on the following evening. The most unifying issues and ideas from the AgendaCamps will be discussed on the following “Agenda on the Road” episode.
