Anticipatory Democracy and Citizen Involvement: Strategies for Communication Education for the Future.
Flory, Joyce
This report describes the "anticipatory democracy" movement, which advocates citizen participation and awareness of future problems, and suggests instructional strategies for the field of communication to increase both students' and community members' future-consciousness and involvement in society. Specific topics of concern are the formation of and participation in state-wide goals programs, public hearings, training of city and school ombudspeople, surveys and polling, the development of community resource centers, media usage, legislative research, and monitoring of local, state, and federal agencies. Appendixes include a communications-committee report concerning alternatives for growth in Washington state, a list of participatory activities for citizens compiled by Alvin Toffler's Anticipatory Democracy Network, suggestions for a class in community leadership and tips for writing to legislators (both developed by the Citizens Information Service of Illinois), and sources of information about legislation and political representation.
