On December 1, the SFU Centre for Dialogue’s Civic Engage Program and the Local Leadership Government Academy held a free webinar entitled Six Questions to Shape Your Public Engagement Plan.
At the 2016 LGLA Leadership Forum, the SFU Centre for Dialogue Civic Engage team and forum participants explored the questions that local governments need to ask themselves before engaging with the public. Building on these findings, we developed a strategic framework to help elected officials and senior staff position public engagement projects so that they add value to decision-making and create credible outcomes, while also setting realistic expectations for participants. This webinar presented the strategic framework, including case study examples, and provided an opportunity to discuss participants’ public engagement questions and challenges.
Time spent in this joint SFU/LGLA session can be put toward course hour requirements for any of the three levels of LGLA Certification in Local Government Leadership. For details, see: https://lgla.ca/programs/#Certificate.
