S2E8 Digital Dialogues: Public Participation in the COVID-19 Era

Hayley Behm Blog Page, Austin ParksCast

In today’s episode, we’re taking you back to our Park Summit Series session from May! In 2020, community engagement in support of public projects was completely transformed by COVID-19. Organizations and consulting firms with meaningful community engagement as their primary mission had to pivot their approaches to meet public health challenges.

Listen and learn how these groups maintained connections to the community, promoted public decision-making through virtual platforms, weathered the challenges and the triumphs, and what the future holds as the pandemic conditions improve!
