The International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) promotes the values and leading practices associated with involving the public in decisions that impact their lives. Some of IAP2’s values and themes are compatible with those of the ASC. Last year ASC and IAP2 collaborated with the Sydney Environmental Educators Network to deliver three professional development workshops in Sydney.
IAP2 has an upcoming conference in October 2011 in Sydney. They have put out a call for organisations and individuals to help develop their conference program. Interested volunteer session curators should focus on the conference themes, skills building or practice reflections – they are not simply looking for case studies.
If you are interested in getting involved see http://www.iap2.org.au/sitebuilder/conference/knowledge/asset/files/41/calloutforcurators-approved.pdf and email them your proposal by 30 June.
More information on the conference and early bird registration details can be found at http://www.iap2.org.au/practicedevelopment/conferences/2011-iap2-australasia-conference
