civic participation

[qodef_workflow animate=”yes”][qodef_workflow_item text=”many communities and individuals are not engaged in defining the processes that shape their lives. patriarchal structures lead to top-down decision-making where active participation is not only not encouraged but may be seen as a challenge or a threat to the leaders that make most of the decisions. as a result, community consultation is limited, with little public accountability of political and community leaders. h2n provides mechanisms, platforms and networks for people to become active participants in the democratic process and the pursuit of social change without dramatically upsetting the social order. providing an outlet for expression through community radio and community groups, h2n catalyzes change by focusing on positive problem solving and shared interest. we see civic participation as a social process in search of win-win outcomes.” image=”5475″ title=”civic participation”][/qodef_workflow]
