2019 West Virginia Civic Life Institute

July 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am - July 19, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

Why should I attend?
Because we have to find more effective ways to talk to each other. Even when we disagree.  Especially when we disagree. Otherwise, how will we ever get anything done? Effective ways of talking and working together on issues that affect the quality of life in our state–that’s what the Civic Life Institute is all about. In an interactive environment, you’ll explore practices that are helping West Virginia communities move forward. Afterward, you’ll head home with new relationships and new ideas to try in your own community.

What will I learn?
You’ll explore effective ways to–

  • Bring people together to talk about important issues
  • Facilitate discussions that consider different points of view
  • Move from productive talk to effective action
  • Learn about current initiatives that help your community talk and work together on issues that affect our state
  • Connect with the growing network of West Virginians who are building these practices in their own communities
