My suggestions to support organizers in remembering that their efforts will be most successful if their own process models a culture of learning:

Design a process that by its very nature supports organizers and participants to listen with friendly curiosity, explore, discover and learn - and evaluate and share lessons learned in public engagement efforts.

To emphasize the spirit of invitation and address why inclusion and diversity are so important in naturally leading to participants taking action...

Invite diverse voices to share ideas and information to lay the groundwork for quality outcomes, democratic participation and self-organized action.

Emphasizing collaboration:

Collaboratively design, plan and convene the engagement specifically to serve both the purpose of the effort and the needs of participants.

I've made a few additions/edits emphasizing collaboration, opportunities, feelings, invitation and facilitation. My suggested text below:

There are many ways in which people can come together to collaborate on issues and opportunities that affect their lives. We believe that public engagement involves inviting diverse yet representative groups of people to wrestle with information and feelings from a variety of viewpoints. It is critical that these conversations are well facilitated and result in providing direction for their own community activities or public judgments that will be seriously considered by policy-makers and/or their fellow citizens.

I agree with Jim that "stakeholder" isn't the word we want. I'd be find with just "authentic engagement around public issues," actually, but I'm okay with "authentic citizen engagement" as well. I just worry that the terms "citizen engagement" and "public engagement" are repeated more than necessary.

I agree with adding this sentence, Tom. I'd prefer to end the statement at "ongoing dialogue and periodic revision," though. Keeps it simpler and doesn't make any promises about the work involved in re-endorsement.

We need to include the fact that we expect to continually evolve this document, so that it doesn't become a problem as orthodoxy. I suggest:

'This version was developed collaboratively in Spring 2009 by members of leading public engagement organizations with the expectation that it will be the subject of ongoing dialogue and periodic revision and re-endorsement.'

It would be useful if, in addition to the existing draft's focus on sharing knowledge, resources and decision making, we could address the importance of sharing power. Partners in a collaboration – citizens and government -- will benefit from having an explicit conversation about the kinds of decision-making and problem-solving power they bring to an initiative, how that power can be shared, and how they will hold themselves and each other accountable for the results of the engagement process. Taking responsibility and accountability into account at every stage of a public engagement effort provides a more realistic context for engagement, increases the chance that the effort will have an impact, and helps embed effective engagement practices in the ongoing practices of governance.

A preliminary sentence says," Rather than promoting partisan agendas, the implementation of these principles generates authentic stakeholder engagement around public issues." ... The words "authentic" and "stakeholder" don't mix for me. As long as people are in their role as "stakeholder" they are inauthentic, and less capable of elevating the quality of their thinking to the higher levels we seek ... like "dialogue," "deliberation" or "choice-creating." I would prefer that we either:
1) replace the word "stakeholder" with "citizen" in that sentence.
or even better
2) that we remove the sentence entirely and embody the sentiment it expresses as the First Principle --- Principle 1: Authentic Engagement - Facilitate people to transcend their partisan or stakeholder roles and to engage others fully as citizens seeking the common welfare.
