Training Level: All


Planning Course Overview

Planning for Effective Public Participation is the introductory module of the iap2 Foundations in Public Participation program. It covers the fundamentals of effective public participation. Using iap2’s Spectrum for Public Participation, participants will learn how to establish clear and achievable objectives for public participation and how to craft a decision statement and define a promise to the public. Participants will learn how to prepare their organizations for conducting public participation and how to plan for the timing, techniques, and resources needed to make public participation a success.

Participants also will consider the practical application of the iap2 Core Values of Public Participation; how the iap2 Code of Ethics applies to both practitioners and clients; and, how to use the iap2 Foundations of Public Participation in a stepwise approach to plan and design public participation programs. Course content includes detailed examples and practical hands-on exercises, so participants leave with the tools needed to build realistic public participation programs.

Planning for Effective Public Participation develops awareness, knowledge and skill in public participation by providing you with the following:

  • An overview of the foundations of public participation, including core values and code of ethics, and discussion about the implications for you as a public participation practitioner – build awareness and professional knowledge
  • A five-step planning approach to plan and design your next public participation program or event – acquire tools to build successful public participation events and programs
  • Case studies and practical hands-on exercises, with opportunities to discuss and apply best practices in a variety of small- and whole-group settings to suit your learning needs – support skill development and build practitioner confidence
  • Coaching and feedback opportunities – encourage analysis and self-reflection for ongoing professional growth and skill enhancement
  • A positive, dynamic learning environment – enjoy and learn in a collegial environment that supports full engagement by trainers and participants alike
