Rediscovering Community, Bringing Decision Making Back Home
Slow Democracy is a site dedicated to local decision making that is inclusive, deliberative, and citizen-powered. It is based on the book Slow Democracy: Rediscovering Community, Bringing Decision Making Back Home by Susan Clark and Woden Teachout (Chelsea Green Publishing, 2012).
"This is a truly important book--it explains, with copious example and lots of common sense, why democracy works better close to home.."
Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future
"Slow Democracy just may be the best thing happening in America today. .. Read this book and consider how this movement can revitalize the communities you care about!"
