Foundations in Public Participation – The only international program of its kind, this program provides participants with an overview of public participation, best practices in the field, and dynamic techniques to enhance impact. This unique training program equips participants with practical tools for designing and implementing effective P2 plans.
Strategies for Dealing with Opposition & Outrage in P2 – Building on IAP2’s global best practices in public involvement and the work of Dr. Peter Sandman, a foremost researcher and expert in public outrage and risk communication, this course will help you move people from rage to reason and engage stakeholders in building consensus for better decisions.
This session provides an overview of what the decision maker should know about the public participation practitioner’s role. Attendees will learn how P2 can be integrated into the overall project plan.
"I wanted to tell you that I’m getting great feedback from everyone and it’s truly been a life changing experience for some, which I knew it would be. I can’t thank you enough for your help this past week and I look forward to two more trainings for the rest of my Public Outreach & Engagement Peer Group. We have about 45 people all being trained with IAP2. Just think what a difference that will make in our Agency moving forward!"
