Citizens’ Jury Demo Project on Electoral Reform to be hosted by Synapcity, October 28

Happening on Sunday, October 28th, Synapcity’s Citizen Jury Demo Project will pilot a new way of engagement for the City of Ottawa, with 35 selected members from the community. Synapcity invites you to join us to witness what a Citizens’ Jury could look like for Ottawa.

The Citizens’ Jury model is seeing great success around the world (most recently in Ireland) by giving informed citizens the opportunity to contribute meaningfully on issues that matter to them. This is a founding principle for Synapcity, which is why they’re bringing this to the community.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about electoral systems and electoral reform while connecting with diverse people from across the city. Synapcity will create a final report, evaluating two outcomes: the deliberative process, and project process itself.

Time: 12:30 PM – 5:00 PM

Date: October 28

Location: L’ Atelier, Saint Paul University
