COVID-19 is impacting our lives and practice of engagement.

As we face greater isolation, our need to stay in touch is increasing. Creating the space for difficult and meaningful conversations is at the core of our practice. This is who we are, what we do, when we are at our best. So, let’s keep in touch, let’s use this time to engage the IAP2 family on the important issues that we will face, and to best prepare for what will most surely be a very different future.

We’ve created this space for an open discussion about the challenges facing engagement practitioners and how we can work together to solve them. A space where you can share your ideas and pose questions to the group to crowdsource solutions. It's also a place where you can find links to resources, online learning opportunities, and other information that we've gathered to support you.

We look forward to the conversation and hope you stay well!

The pause in our respective economies enables time to be spent on important strategic 'pivots' such as establishing a clear focus on best practices in digital and social engagement techniques and tools.Similarly, it is important that we not lose the importance of in-person engagement as we emerge from this current situation. Safety concerns may well exaggerate trends that were already developing as potential participants in engagement processes congregate together into position-groups. IAP2 may need to see itself as playing a lead role in advocating for inquiry-based, in-person interactions in broader society in the same manner that it currently promotes within the community of practitioners.
