Critical communication for community engagement.

Who do you trust?

Join us for a special collaboration between IABC Canberra and the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2). IAP2 Australasia is committed to advancing the practice of community and stakeholder engagement through education, advocacy and building partnerships.

Public trust levels of governments and large corporations have never been lower. In this era of ‘fake news’, how do you communicate authentically with the public and drive understanding and acceptance of new policies and programs?

Hear from expert community engagement practitioner of over 20 years, Lucy Cole-Edelstein from RPS as she shares her experiences navigating the fine line between communication, consultation and client outcomes. Lucy will discuss IAP2’s Public Participation Spectrum and share her insights from recent community engagement programs including the NSW Government’s controversial Wild Brumby Management Plan and the innovative ACT Government  approach through deliberative democracy on Housing Choices.

Join us for this special collaboration between IABC Canberra and the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2). IAP2 Australasia is committed to advancing the practice of community and stakeholder engagement through education, advocacy and building partnerships.

Lucy’s presentation is brought to you courtesy of our event sponsor RPS – specialists delivering community and stakeholder engagement to support infrastructure planning and assessment.
