Community Engagement in 2021: Productive. Safe. Online.

Community engagement can create an environment where public participation influences the decisions and visions that will sustain our communities now and in the future.

This kind of engagement is deepening and expanding across the globe, becoming a vital cornerstone of well-functioning democracies. In order to fully harness the power of community engagement, it’s important for individuals, public organizations, and governments to understand the principles and benefits of this impactful skill.

Download this session for a look at how community engagement continues to grow and thrive. We’ll look at real-world examples of successful engagement, discuss how to effectively engage with residents during this time of crisis, and benefits of approaching communities with the goal of learning – not fixing.

• Learn what meaningful engagement looks like in times of crisis.
• Understand how engagement can be used to improve current efficiencies and mitigate risk.
