Speakers will present examples from different social settings addressing a diverse group of urban and rural populations. Age, race, ethnicity, and immigration status are among the most challenging factors impacting one’s level of participation in policy making. The outcomes of this webinar will inform professional planners about fine lines between active and passive public engagement methods/techniques. The webinar is a collaboration between Planning Communities, APA Sustainable Communities Division, and APA Technology Division.
