Event: Ignite Phoenix 3 @ TCA
Event Date: February 25th, 2008

My presentation is based upon the book Bowling Alone: The collapse and Revival of American Community by Robert Putnam. I plan to draw on ideas and illustrations from the book in order to present how community involvement has declined in America over the last 50 years, why this trend is happening, and why reviving community is important. Finally, I will discuss why Ignite Phoenix is an important step towards reviving our sense of community and urge the audience to bridge the gap from virtual community involvement to physical involvement.

Presented by Eric Weisbrod
