IAP2A launches a dedicated Local Government Hub
With a range of community engagement resources to support practitioners in Local Government.
As the peak body for the community and stakeholder engagement sector, IAP2 Australasia, believes that engagement, when done well, improves social, environmental and economic outcomes and increases trust in the democratic process.
Better engagement means better outcomes for Council, your projects and your community.
The International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) Australasia is a non-profit organisation which champions the world’s largest community of engagement professionals by offering leading professional development, trusted services, events and advocacy across Australia and New Zealand.
As an international leader in public participation, IAP2 has developed tools that are widely used and acknowledged.
These include the Core Values for Public Participation for use in the development and implementation of public participation processes and the IAP2 Public Participation Spectrum which assists with the selection of the level of participation that defines the public’s role in any community engagement program.
Additionally, the Quality Assurance Standard for Community and Stakeholder Engagement, is recognised as the international standard for public participation practice.
And now, for engagement practitioners working in Local Government looking to enhance their organisational engagement practices, you will find a wealth of articles, tools and resources on IAP2A’s Local Government hub.
There are over 100 resources on the hub including examples of Community Engagement Policies and Frameworks; case studies; conference presentations; webinars; tools, templates and news articles from engagement professionals.
