Public consultation and engagement over resource development and environmental issues are a legal mandate, a moral imperative, and a primary mechanism for understanding and reducing public conflict and opposition. Public engagement can allow for better project management by identifying critical public concerns and inviting the public to constructively resolve them. This course will introduce participants to the core concepts of public engagement, including its strengths and limitations, its appropriate uses and misuses, and the strategies and tools through which it can be achieved. On the last day of the course, we will apply these principles to real life situations. Participants are encouraged to bring in their own "problems" as material for this exercise.
