LEx CONVERSATIONS – Peter Biro

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Peter Biro is a passionate advocate for human rights, resistance against unaccountable governments, corporate influence and technology. He is the founder of Section 1″, a an initiative calling all Canadians to a type of heroic citizenship in the face of some pretty serious threats to constitutional democracy, here and around the world.

In this conversation, we use Peter’s soon-to-be-released book, Constitutional Democracy Under Stress: A Time for Heroic Citizenship, as a way into a rich conversation about leadership, citizenship and what that means in our current age.
