IAP2's Asian Pacific Conference to be Held in Sydney this March

Our friends at the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) asked us to spread the word that the IAP2 Asia Pacific Conference "Risks and Rewards in Public Participation" is open for registrations now and they are filling fast. The conference will take place in Sydney, Australia March 6 through 8, 2005.

Given the importance of conversing with communities and working with them in building and planning, the conference is particularly timely following the devastating impact of the Indian Ocean Tsunami. The conference includes an extensive line up of speakers from Australia, New Zealand and the USA addressing topics such as new futures and how to create them. Click below for more details, or just go to www.iap2.org.au.

IAP2 is pleased to be bringing Bliss Browne to Australia. Bliss has worked with disadvantaged and discouraged communities and young people across Europe, South America and Asia.

Presentations will also be given from a wide range of practitioners, academics, researchers and participants from China, India, South Africa, New Zealand and of course Australia. The conference will be interactive and there will be lots of opportunities to discuss, swap stories and listen to first hand experience from a wide range of applications.

Registrations can be made by going to www.iap2.org.au and early bird registrations close next week, so book now! We look forward to seeing you there.
