38 postsecondary institutions announced plans to hold a two-day, online event bringing together 1,500 young people from across the United States for moderated discussions on some of the most pressing issues facing the nation.
The students deliberated in depth on specific policy proposals designed to reduce economic inequality, which included Universal Basic Income, Baby Bonds, more progressive tax structures, and capping executive pay.
Are you interested in meaningful, open dialogue about pressing issues facing our country? Do you want to be a more well-informed citizen and (future) voter? If so, we invite you to join with hundreds of high school students from across the Baltimore region for a two-day deliberation on some of the most important issues shaping the 2020 election.
Over 300 students from across the country participated in an online deliberative controlled experiment, using our automated moderator platform, discussing the issues of economy and healthcare.
The Deliberative Poll conducted a random sample of the undergraduate population. About 200 undergrads participated in the Deliberative Poll over one weekend, where they discussed Stanford and national issues.
For the first time, over 200 California public high school seniors from the Bay Area participated in a Deliberative Poll on the issues of voting rights and the value of being informed about politics and public policy. Over the course of one school day, students deliberated with one another on the Stanford University campus and had the opportunity to hear from leading experts in the field.
How might Deliberative Polling® be used on college campuses to engage students, faculty, staff, and/or members of the broader community in discussions of public issues? Could those deliberations contribute to a more informed community, to better democratic processes, and to the strengthening of the work of preparing undergraduates to be informed, engaged citizens?
