The Utah Foundation has launched a new series on social capital. RadioACTive spoke with UF's Shawn Teigen about the findings in The Measure of a Citizen: Civic Engagement in Utah.
Excerpt:"Robust citizen engagement in the democratic process and in civic improvement has long been seen as a barometer of the vitality of the American republic. At the state and local levels, civic engagement has significant implications for the effectiveness and efficiency of government, the quality of services government delivers and the responsiveness of public officials to the priorities of the public. Citizens displaying a high degree of civic engagement also tend to be accustomed to collaborating to achieve common goals. A decline in civic engagement, by contrast, can reduce the accountability of the public sector and produce a negative public spirit."
