Earlier this year, PACE and the Knight Foundation gathered local and national leaders for a day-long conversation in Detroit to exchange ideas for how we better engage communities in our increasingly connected, yet still fragmented world. The insights shared through the TED-style learning event were invaluable, and we have collected them in a new report, Connected Citizens Detroit: A Snapshot of Civic Engagement. While many of the lessons center on Detroit’s growing community of social entrepreneurs, we know they will resonate with all of those who, like us, are continually searching for new ways to help communities shape their futures.
