Overview

Organisations are increasingly expected to engage with community stakeholders and demonstrate their efforts to formulate a formal process. Too often community engagement processes are bland, miss the mark and illustrate processes that actually alienate the stakeholders and community members they are trying to involve. Good and effective community engagement brings new information to the table, allowing stakeholders to gain a greater understanding of the actions of organisations and the reasons for them– thus building up relationships between them and community. The wide variety of issues that industry need to consult on and the range of different stakeholders that might be involved means that the number and mix of potential methodologies for community engagement is massive.

This masterclass uses a Roadmap as a framework for practical planning for community engagement. Participants will work through a planning process developing skills for communication and involvement of small and large groups of people. The pros and cons of different methodologies are examined, and the circumstances in which particular tools might be used are clarified.
