Community Engagement Charter Masterclass

Learn about the Community Engagement Charter and how it will change the way we engage with our communities about planning. Tuesday 25 September 2018, 9.30am to 4pm, Hotel Richmond, Adelaide. 

URPS is pleased to present this exciting new training opportunity about the Community Engagement Charter.

Join engagement expert Nicole Halsey as she walks you through the Charter and shows you how to put it into practice.

Participants will learn:

  • What the Charter says
  • How the Charter works in practice
  • How to plan and deliver your engagement so that it meets the principles of the Charter
  • How to measure the success of your engagement.

The day will culminate in participants applying what they have learnt by developing an engagement plan for a hypothetical scenario in line with the Charter.  A range of tools will also be provided for participants to take with them to their workplaces.

The training will also touch on other fundamentals of engagement such as how to:
