Facilitating deliberative mini-publics - Real Democracy Now!

Keith Greaves (one of MosaicLab's co-founders) was interviewed on a recent episode of Real Democracy Now! - a podcast that answers the question: can we do democracy differently?

The episode, which also features interviews with facilitators Lucy Cole-Edelstein, Director of Straight Talk and Max Hardy, Principal at Max Hardy Consulting, considers the concept of 'mini publics' (or deliberative processes) from the perspective of the facilitator.

The engaging discussion explores the challenges, benefits and intricacies associated with these processes from the perspective of those 'on the ground'.   Keith delves into some interesting areas in the interview, including discussing the link between deliberative philosophies and principles and other engagement approaches, and how these principles can (and should) be honoured in any quality engagement process.
