Let's Tango! How to put civic power into community practice

Citizen Power is hot! The government withdraws from the public domain. Together, people take matters into their hands to create their own inspiring environment. What citizens' initiatives are there? What drives people to do so? And what are the lessons learned? September 13th, 9 speakers and our host tell you all about it at TEDx Damlaan in Het Veur Theater in Leidschendam about The power of Community (English spoken).
