Good People

I joined IAP2 USA about three years ago after learning about it when a team leader mentioned it on a CPAT I coordinated. The team leader, Marijoan “MJ” Bull, spoke positively about the organization and demonstrated her P2 expertise during the community meetings." - Eric Roach

IAP2 July Learning Webinar

Tuesday, July 10, 2018, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)

Once again this month, we are excited to present one of the sessions from the 2017 IAP2 North American Conference in Denver. Addressing many of today’s most pressing societal, economic and environmental problems requires both engaging broad public audiences and working with complex systems of institutions, actors and drivers.

Governments are democratically elected to address these problems—but can’t do so alone. Success requires a systems-based approach that takes into account the values of citizens, identifies leverage points for intervention, and builds collaboration among multiple actors.

How to achieve that? Sebastian Merz and Robin Prest of the Morris Wosk Centre for Dialogue at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC, and Dr Martin Carcasson of Colorado State University, will discuss how to achieve that participatory systems change. Their work builds on the work of over a dozen thought leaders, who met in Whistler, BC, in 2016.
