What makes P2 a safe space?

This year's Signature Event is about exploring the concept of creating a safe space for difficult conversations through the lens of reconciliation. In our increasingly polarized and complex world, public participation processes can be filled with emotion, fears, assumptions, hope, and hesitation. As P2 practitioners, it's our responsibility to make P2 spaces safe for everyone to participate in a meaningful and respectful way.

In advance of this event, we're drawing on the collective wisdom of the IAP2 Wild Rose community to help us answer the question: "what makes a P2 space safe?"

Send us an email to info@iap2wildrosechapter.org and tell us - in 20 words or less - what are the qualities, techniques, or approaches that make a P2 space safe for everyone to have meaningful dialogue about tough topics.

Our Signature Event Sponsors

As a not-for-profit organization run exclusively by volunteers, the Signature Event depends in part on the generosity of our sponsors and organizations that consider themselves leaders in the field of public participation and indigenous engagement.

Many thanks to the organizations that stepped forward to help bring you this event - TransCanada, the Canadian Trainers Collective, ISL Engineering, Communica, and McElhanney!
