In this podcast, Amelia talks to Robin Prest about the deliberative forums being run across Canada about Climate Change for Natural Resources Canada, the role of experts, methods for public engagement, how public engagement fits within democracy and a new way governments are commissioning independent organisations to manage community engagement.
Robin Prest is the civic engagement program director at the Simon Fraser University Centre for Dialogue. The Civic Engage program is an initiative designed to strengthen the capacity of governments and citizens to work collaboratively on policy decisions. He regularly supports elected officials and senior decision-makers to improve the clarity and impact of public engagement initiatives, and to embed engagement within organizational cultures.
