North American Conference Program: September 14-16, 2022
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Banff, where you will join more than 400 other public participation practitioners, gathering in-person to enjoy the sights, grounds and views of the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (Banff, Alberta). Over three days, you will find workshops, sessions, field trips and poster presentations to challenge us all to think more deeply about our public participation practice.
This year’s conference theme is “Connecting with Purpose”: connecting through differences; connecting to achieve diverse representation; connecting with Indigenous ways of knowing; connecting through the screen; connecting with the P2 community.
