The art and science of effective community engagement

This course will provide personnel involved with exploration and early development projects with a comprehensive understanding of good practice for successful engagement with host communities. It will build on guidance provided by e3Plus and incorporate the collective knowledge of some of the most experienced practitioners working in the mining sector. The day will be built around three elements for constructive

• Knowledge: basic concepts and tools that can be used for engagement purposes
• Skills: practical engagement skills including listening and asking questions
• Behaviour: desired outcomes when approaching the public, the media, NGOs or local community leaders.

The course will be designed to appeal to both Canadian and international participants and reflect the reality that junior and mid-tier companies are not only the organizations that most often engage with communities and other stakeholders on the ground but also have limited resources. It will emphasize practical approaches, use case histories to show application (and limitations) and will be of value to both operational personnel and managers, and also relevant to the concerns of company board members.
