This two-day introductory module of the IAP2 Certificate Program in Public Participation provides the fundamentals for effective public participation. Using IAP2’s Spectrum for Public Participation, participants learn how to establish clear and achievable objectives for public participation and how to define a “promise” to the public. Participants learn how to prepare their organization for conducting public participation and how to plan for the timing, techniques and resources needed to make public participation a success.
Participants also learn the practical application of 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 step-wise 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. Exercises include using IAP2’s five steps for planning effective public participation.
