Looking for assistance with organizing and sustaining productive public engagement? Struggling to decide how to use online engagement tools? Frustrated with the standard “2 minutes at the microphone” public meeting? Need expert advice on bringing together a diverse critical mass of people? 

The Public Engagement Strategy Workshop will provide you with the tools and resources you need to authentically engage stakeholders in thoughtful, democratic processes.

Public Agenda trainers Matt Leighninger and Nicole Cabral, with Institute for Local Government's trainer Sarah Rubin, will:

  • Provide an overview of the strengths and limitations of public engagement today;
  • Help you assess the strengths and weaknesses of public engagement in your community;
  • Explore potential benefits of more sustained forms of participation,
  • Develop practical skills for planning for stronger engagement infrastructure; and
  • Demonstrate a mix of small group and large group discussions, interactive exercises, case studies and practical application exercises. 

NOTE: Students enjoy a discounted rate. If you are a student, email pe@publicagenda.org.
