The Growing Democracy Project began with the vision of creating an online, co-created curriculum focused on fostering civic engagement and collective action. In 2019 we convened faculty, staff, students, and community members from throughout northeast Ohio to co-create a civic and political engagement curriculum. Our equity-center civic engagement curriculum is built on 5 inter-related modules, focusing on skills and practices for creating sustainable change.
As a part of our curriculum, we have worked with students and community members to develop “concept pages”. Check out our community-developed Concepts, Events, & People pages. We are adding more concept pages regularly!
In 2020 we launched out Podcast and Blog, both of which supplement our online curriculum, providing rich stories and deeper discussion on key issues.
