Key qualities are flexibility, curiosity, openness, enthusiasm to learn and patience. Our previous delegations have brought together, among others, a retiree from Saltspring Island, a geography student from the University of Victoria, a city councillor and provincial government employees. Each participant contributes their unique abilities and gifts, both during the election and afterward.
Delegates return to their respective communities in order to share their experiences, and a new critical awareness, of having observed the citizens of another country work towards strengthening their political institutions.
