Dealing with Deeply Held Concerns and Organized Opposition in Public Engagement Activities

Post Brian Moura

This hour-long webinar also features practical advice from ILG’s Public Engagement program staff.


The Sustainable Communities Learning Network’s Brownbag Webinar from March 13, 2013:

No matter what the issue, citizens with strong views and often competing beliefs challenge the ability of cities and counties to hold productive and civil public hearings and meetings. Community engagement processes and strategies that anticipate and respond effectively to such situations are possible. Learn from the experience of others and receive tips for designing processes that are effective, responsive, and civil.
