Reinvent Governance conference to gather local, international experts

3CG will host October event at CU-Boulder

The Center for the Study of Conflict, Collaboration and Creative Governance (3CG) will host the Reinvent Governance conference Oct. 8-10, drawing together scores of internationally respected professionals and scholars in conflict studies, public deliberation and community planning with business and community leaders.

The center also will offer a public pre-conference program as part of Conflict Resolution Month on Oct. 8. Local and international experts will address a variety of issues including religious extremism and global terrorism, sustainability, social entrepreneurship and interorganizational coordination in Afghanistan.

The pre-conference program also will present techniques for public deliberation, creating community dialogues and using new tools for community decision-making.

The 75-minute workshops and presentations are free and open to faculty, students, staff and the public. The program is presented in conjunction with the celebration of Conflict Resolution Month endorsed by Gov. Bill Ritter, the Colorado General Assembly and University of Colorado Boulder Chancellor Philip DiStefano.

The three-day Reinvent Governance conference will showcase and invent ways that businesses, governments and civic groups can more effectively make positive mutually decisions regarding issues of development, resources use and violence prevention.

Topics include promoting creative governance, learning from other countries and societies and grassroots governance.
