Changing the Public Debate by Telling the Stories of the Emerging Economy in Red and Rural Places

This session will dive into issues of language, framing, communications, media, and getting beyond typical ‘progressive’ language and preoccupations, in order to make new allies.  Local First, AZ will describe how they’ve forged common ground with conservatives and the business community, using practical results and deliberate framing;  MACED will discuss the long term process of building support for an economic transition away from extractive industries; and We Own it will share elements of their strategy which reframe the debate around energy, ownership and democracy.  This session will be highly participatory.
