SKILLS SYMPOSIUM: (1 day) Building Better Participation Infrastructure

  • May 27, 2015
  • 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM (CDT)
  • Humphrey School of Public Affairs, Room 170


Registration is closed
Most public participation efforts are one-off projects focused on a single issue or decision. Many of these processes have been successful, but this piecemeal approach is difficult, inefficient, and hard to sustain.

Meanwhile, we know that when it is sustained, participation has a range of other impacts, from economic development to public health. 

How can we create a stronger infrastructure for local democracy – one that makes participation easier, more sustainable, and more enjoyable? 

In this course, Tina Nabatchi and Matt Leighninger will use practical tools from their new book, Public Participation for 21 st Century Democracy, to lead a discussion on how communities can start thinking differently about participation.
