The City Club of Portland presents a panel discussion about how we can:
- Engage citizens of all generations, backgrounds and affiliations in dialogue on how well we are preparing youth and young adults for local-to-global citizenship and fulfilling lives in the 21st century;
- Explore the possibilities and challenges we face in developing engaged citizens and leaders who will build on the diversity, vitality, sustainability, and equity needs of all of our communities and regions;
- Share ideas for moving our dialogue into action, engaging those who educate, parent, care for, or mentor youth and young adults from early child through college and university years.
Meet & greet at 5:30 p.m., followed by short film clips of citizenship education in action, panelists' remarks, audience dialogue and small group discussions.
Admission is free, but registration is required. Call the City Club of Portland's Reservations line at 503-228-7231 x110 or email Rachel Loskill.
