About Foundations in Public Participation

Foundations in Public Participation was designed with the input of successful practitioners who work with diverse populations and divergent circumstances throughout the world. As we designed this comprehensive new program, we listened to what you told us about your training needs.This course will let you hit the ground running, armed with the knowledge and confidence you need to plan and execute effective initiatives for any area in which you may be working. The course is divided into two modules, each focusing on one of the two major phases of public participation, planning and techniques. Upon completion of both modules, you will receive a certificate of completion from IAP2.

Planning for Effective Public Participation (Three-Days) A major reason that initiatives fail to reach their goals is inadequate preparation. Our planning module provides you with a proven structure that will greatly increase your odds of a successful project. This hands-on course gives you the opportunity to delve into your own challenges as you learn and review the essential elements of effective public participation planning.

  • Evaluating the scope of a decision and identifying the processes needed.
  • Identifying the decision steps including timing and needed resources.
  • Establishing roles and responsibilities of the primary parties.
  • Developing a comprehensive, decision impact analysis to identify the stakeholder community, their concerns, and hopes.
  • Selecting the appropriate level of public participation.
  • Setting clear and achievable objectives.
  • Developing a detailed public participation plan.
  • Planning for communications initiatives that support the process.
  • Identifying appropriate evaluation tools to measure the effectiveness of the initiative.

This course is a prerequisite for the subsequent module, Techniques for Effective Public Participation.
