I have been invited to speak at the “Scuola Politica 2009” in the Etruscan town of Cortona in Tuscany.
The Scuola Politica is a annual forum which gathers international thought leaders such as Rigoberta Menchu’, 1992 nobel peace prize winner, Abolhassan Banisadr, the first president of Iran after the fall of the Shah, Richard Parker Lecturer in Public Policy and Senior Fellow of the Shorenstein Center at Harvard University, David Schweickart, Professor of Philosophy at Loyola University Chicago.
The event will take place from the 10th to the 12th of Septembre. Each day will be devoted to a particular theme: Society, Culture, Communications and politics.
This last theme is the one I have chosen for my presentation. I have realised that while much praise has been given to the Barack Obama presidential campaign, few people have examined in details why it was so effective in spurring volunteers into action.
My presentation will be available for download after the event is over.
