Course Description:

FOUNDATIONS: PLANNING FOR EFFECTIVE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION (THREE DAYS):
This interactive course introduces the foundations of effective public participation, useful for anyone working for or involved in public participation and community engagement projects in the government, institutional, parastatal, mining, oil and gas and other sectors.

The course focuses on the foundations and principles of public participation, defining the issues for which public participation is required, identifying stakeholders and ensuring their involvement throughout the process. Using IAP2’s Spectrum of Public Participation, course participants establish clear and achievable objectives for public participation. Participants learn how to prepare an organisation for conducting public participation and to plan for the timing, techniques, communication principles and methods, and resources needed for an effective public participation process.

TECHNIQUES FOR EFFECTIVE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION (TWO DAYS):
Introduces a range of practical tools and techniques used at all five levels of IAP2’s Public Participation Spectrum.
This module breaks down specific techniques that can be used during the public participation process including World Café, interviews, revolving conversations, deliberation, and advisory groups. Participants will leave armed with a wealth of reference material, IAP2 tip-sheets, and the ability to select appropriate techniques for each new project.

IAP2 Southern Africa is the regional affiliate of the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2). The courses will be presented by Tisha Greyling, an accredited IAP2 trainer.
