Effective community engagement
Strong, vibrant communities have an active and engaged citizenry. Effective engagement leads to increased public understanding, input and support for community ideas and decisions and helps to grow local leadership. This workshop will provide you with the skills to do effective outreach and engagement in your community – and to understand the difference! We will cover the benefits and challenges of community engagement. You will learn how to identify audiences to engage such as the business community, residents, leaders, youth and under-represented groups. You will hear about the many engagement tools you can use such as storytelling circles, focus groups, rich pictures, interviews, posters and story maps. You will come away with the skills to develop and implement a targeted – volunteer led - plan for community engagement and in doing so, strengthen your project and community.
