SPECIAL WEBINAR: COVID-19 and the Impact on P2

  • October 22, 2021
  • 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)
  • Online


Registration is closed

The COVID-19 pandemic has made a substantial impact on public participation practices. We know that, and now, a research paper by Dr Stephanie Yates, Professor at University of Quebec at Montreal, and Hugo Mimee, CP3, puts some data behind that. In this webinar, Stephanie and Hugo will discuss their work. They’ll share what they’ve found related to P2 in times of crisis, identify ways of adapting practices in this context, and reflect on the human challenges posed by remote participation. You’ll have a chance to give your reflections on the changing P2 landscape and how the practices developed during the crisis are likely to develop.
