Webinar Rewind –
Addressing many of today’s most pressing problems requires both engaging broad public audiences and working within complex systems of institutions, actors and drivers. In our July webinar, Prof. Martin Carcasson of the Center for Public Deliberation at Colorado State University, Prof. David Kahane of University of Alberta, and Robin Prest of the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue at Simon Fraser University describe how the emerging field of “Participatory Systems Change” can create better outcomes for complex or “wicked” problems. These methods are better able to account for the values of citizens, identify leverage points for intervention, and build collaboration among multiple actors.

August - Public Transportation & P2
August 14, 2018
No doubt about it: when it comes to transportation, people have opinions and want to be involved in their transportation system. Coming up on August 14, IAP2 Canada and IAP2 USA team up with Rail~Volution to showcase collaboration between public transportation agencies and citizens’ groups. Bakari Height of the MARTA Army, an asphalt-level (similar to “grassroots” but involves road and rail) organization in Atlanta, GA, will share how his group works with the Metropolitan Atlanta Regional Transit Authority, taking initiative that has complemented the agency’s work. He’ll be joined by Andrew Devlin of TransLink in Metro Vancouver, which has been engaging the public for over two years on fare structure. And we’ll also hear about a triple-play from Minnesota: public participation, public transportation and public health.
NB: because of the IAP2 North American Conference, there will be no Learning Webinar in September.
Monthly webinars are recorded and are available as a member benefit for IAP2 USA members. Check out the page here.
