Summer Book Club - Western Lake Ontario District

Start/End Date: Monday, July 18, 2022 12:00 AM - Thursday, September 15, 2022 12:00 AM
District: Western Lake Ontario District

TBD

Join fellow planners from the Western Lake Ontario District (and beyond) for a summer book club featuring the book “Shift Change: Scenes from a Post-Industrial Revolution” by Stephen Dale (2021).

The book is Hamilton focused – specifically about the on-going progression of the city from a hub of industrial activity to an economically diverse urban centre. The book explores the theme of gentrification in Hamilton through interviews with local urbanists. The book can be purchased locally in Hamilton at King West Books, or through most online retailers (also as an e-book). There are also copies available through the Hamilton Public Library.

We’re keeping things pretty casual this time. No need to worry about online book club check-ins or weekly questions. We may send out some emails to touch base and see how everyone is doing with the reading.

This is a quick book club, just for the summer, and we will wrap things up with a gathering at a local destination in Hamilton (TBD) where we can share our thoughts about the book and enjoy the last days of summer. Tentative date for the meet up is the evening of Thursday, September 15th - hopefully somewhere with a patio!

District: Ontario

Online workshop.

Information to connect will be emailed to you on Tuesday, October 11 at noon. Please, check your “spam/junk” folder if you do not see the email in your inbox.

The IAP2’s Public Participation for Decision Makers workshop is designed to help integrate effective public participation into a project plan. During the session, we will examine the challenges and benefits of public participation, discuss when to involve the public in an organizational decision, and discuss the importance of balancing public involvement and the decision process.

 

By the end of this workshop, planners will have learned:

      the foundations of Public Participation (P2)

      how P2 can be integrated into the overall project plan

      the costs and benefits of a P2 process and how to get the best value

      the importance of both the decision to be made and the promise to the public about what their involvement means in making that decision when to involve the public in an organizational decision

 

This workshop is well-suited for planners, politicians, project managers, engineers, non-profit organization employees and senior executives and management. This course is not intended for public participation practitioners.
