The Community Dialogues are a once-per-term event which “seeks to cultivate connection and deep learning through exploration of critical and contentious issues“. The program utilizes a National Issues Forum Model which aims to engage participants in dialogues that:
- Create a deeper understanding of current issues and related tensions
- Reveal alternative perspectives
- Connect participants through stories and experiences
- Explore concepts of personal ethics, morals, and values
Program facilitators are trained to sustain open and respectful dialogue and create spaces for individual, interpersonal, and systemic exploration – in a broad effort to encourage a culture of dialogue at OSU.
This winter, the Community Dialogue will focus on Climate Choices: How should we address the challenges of a warming planet?
- Explore multiple perspectives on the possible solutions to our changing climate. Open to the entire OSU and Corvallis community.
- Registration encouraged, walk-ins welcome. Please bring a reusable mug or water bottle if possible.
