Planning for Effective Public Participation Certificate Training

A significant reason public engagement initiatives fail to reach their goals is inadequate preparation. This hands-on course gives you the opportunity to delve into your own challenges as you learn and review the essential elements of effective public participation planning.

Learn How to: 

  • Evaluate the scope of a decision and identify the processes needed
  • Identify the decision steps including timing and needed resources
  • Establish roles and responsibilities of the primary parties
  • Develop a comprehensive, decision impact analysis to identify the stakeholder community, their concerns, and hopes
  • Select the appropriate level of public participation
  • Set clear and achievable objectives
  • Develop a detailed public participation plan
  • Plan for communications initiatives that support the process
  • Identify appropriate evaluation tools to measure effectiveness

This is one of two certificate courses comprising the Foundations Training in Public Participation developed by the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2). The second course, Techniques for Effective Public Participation, will be offered later this year.
