Supporting the Practitioners of the Future

CTC and the IAP2 Wild Rose Chapter joined forces last year to sponsor a student’s participation in the IAP2 Planning for Effective Public Participation course.  Our student participant was Megan Mucignat who is in the Master of Planning program at the University of Calgary’s faculty of Environmental Design.  Megan has recently returned from a semester in Melbourne, Australia, so we checked in with her to see how she has used her IAP2 training

“My interest in public engagement was inspired by my love of simply connecting with people and has been a major focus of my master studies. Being sponsored to take the IAP2 foundation course has increased my ability to build consensus and confidently approach community engagement with a set of successful tools. The IAP2 Foundations course is a pillar in what I hope to be a long career committed to effective public engagement. I was humbled and inspired by the work of the Canadian Trainers Collective and by the sense of mentorship that is fostered in IAP2 for young professionals.”

CTC is pleased to be able to support new practitioners and will be sponsoring a student again in the future.
