Abstract

With the hope of inspiring readers to reimagine the centrality of general education in constituting young adult capacities to create and sustain collective self-governance, this essay describes two courses and one activity built around public problems. General education viewed as a human right as well as a shared responsibility can thus serve as a collegelevel introduction to the habits and pleasures of lifelong collaborative learning, illustrating education's centrality in constituting the future of participatory democracy.
