We believe that a healthy democracy can only survive when its citizens debate the critical issues of the day. This means we must have an on-going dialogue where we share our thoughts with our fellow citizens.

Towards that purpose World Community created a “magazine” style website where community groups from the Comox Valley and beyond could share their information and media relevant to local social justice, environmental and democracy issues.

You are warmly invited to join in CV Conversations which will be more—conversational; represent a diversity of perspectives on topics of interest to Comox Valley residents. We don't know how this will turn out—It's and experiment! We're going to make up the rules as we go and we thoroughly hope that others will want to join the conversations and contribute new ideas as to how the conversations can evolve.

If you are interested in being part of CV Conversations for one issue or for all posts or have some thoughts on how this conversational blog could be even more relevant/interesting send me a note at nreynolds at shaw.ca. We, the founding members of CV Conversations, see this as a natural progression for a participator centred local community website.
