On the other blog I write called RebootAlberta I did a post citizen empowerment as a consequences of individual commitment to a cause, issue or concern. Once someone makes a commitment then things start to really happen. I found a great quote by Goethe to make the point.
I expect we will see people going into and coming out of Reboot 3.0 with a clearer sense of what needs to be done in Alberta for us to become the best we can for the world and why that is worthy of our efforts.
Progressives found in Reboot 1.0 that they were not alone. There are many of us. In fact we are looking at the Reboot Values random survey and seeing how many of those folks align significantly with the Reboot progressive value set. It will be a rough approximation of the size of the progressive population in Alberta.
In Reboot 2.0 we discerned and researched who we are and what we considered as important values as progressives in Alberta. That research is discussed in this blog post http://ken-chapman.blogspot.com/2010/06/alberta-progressive-values-align-well.html and in the context of the priority of the values held by the Reboot community and everyday Albertans.
In Reboot 3.0 there is a sense of some need for focused action on what is of importance to progressives in Alberta. We will be designing the event to let people select what they want to talk about, what they see as winnable issues and what it will take to embed progressive values in the Alberta political culture going forward.
