Description: Participants will explore case studies, learn new techniques, and leave with a practical understanding of the IAP2 framework and tips for effective public engagement.

Increasingly, decision-making requires public engagement. Do you also find this a complex and frustrating part of planning? You are not alone. The International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) is the global leader in public engagement. IAP2 is rooted in seven Core Values and provides a practical framework to plan and deliver effective public engagement. Increasingly, planners and decision-makers are looking to IAP2 to guide the public engagement component of planning. Students will explore case studies, learn new techniques, and leave with a practical understanding of the IAP2 framework and tips for how to plan for effective public engagement.
