Engaged Communities: How community-led development can increase civic participation
Business and Economic Research Limited (BERL) and the Helen Clark Foundation are excited to announce our partnership with the launch of a new report on the role of local government in enabling engaged communities.
Informed and engaged communities are central to a healthy democratic society, and local government has a critical role to play. Community engagement should be about building relationships, encouraging civic participation and community involvement. It should be about interactions and connections, getting everyone involved, and acknowledging and acting on local expertise. Effective community engagement should be about the process as much as it is about the results.
Join us for an invite-only event, where we’ll discuss the report and you’ll have an opportunity to talk with other local government leaders on our recommendations.
