Building Trust by Opening Minst with Scott Newton | Monday 12th August | 5:30PM
are living through a challenging time - where the very principles of
democracy are being challenged by a lack of trust between politicians
and the people. How can trust be built and what role can we, as
Sydney facilitator, Scott Newton, has been working with four UTS
Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation students to explore
these trust issues – Marissa Motsos, Sharon Gao, Nusardol Oshana, and
Nic Hurrell. The students have met with NSW Parliament Speaker Jonathon
O’Dea , Executive Director NewDemocracy Iain Walker, Advisor to the
Premier Marc Snape and many more.
From these interviews, research and experiments, the students deduced
that the more open people are to new ideas and perspectives, the more
weight their recommendations and decisions carry. And so they’ve
developed a workshop activity to do just that - open minds.
Come along to our next session to help test this new approach and to
discuss, more broadly, explore how we can help open up a participant’s
mind, heart and will - to encourage deliberation and produce deeper
workshop insights and nuanced decisions.
