Throughout Lynn Blanchard’s more than 20 years at UNC-Chapel Hill, she has connected people across campus and the state of North Carolina for civic good. And last July, she brought her expertise to the Philippines to teach Southeast Asian civic leaders how to impact in their communities.
Blanchard, director of the Carolina Center for Public Service, co-led a four-day workshop entitled “Civic Education for Good Governance,” in Manila, the Philippines capital.
The workshop was organized by Cultural Vistas, a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C., with the goal of using civic education to promote civic participation, good governance and transparency and accountability in government in Southeast Asia. Blanchard was invited to lead the session because of her extensive knowledge in project-based learning and civic engagement.
