Welcome to the discussion.
My intention in starting this group is to bring together our experiences in the practice of public participation. To ask questions about the different ways that the public are encouraged/ enabled/ patronised/ prevented/ misled etc. In other words:
what tools have you found useful? what are the resources that you have found most useful? what are the ways of communicating and dialogue that work best in your country and could these be useful for others to learn from? what are the pitfalls?
