Learn how to match the right communications and engagement tools to each part of a project lifecycle with CitizenLab and Konveio
Introducing the CitizenLab x Konveio partnership.
Get everyone on the same page with a full suite of online community engagement tools and interactive documents.
Until now, online engagement tools have applied a one-size-fits-all approach; relying heavily on surveys throughout a project lifecycle and under-investing in initial and follow-up communications. This approach can make engagement feel transactional and leave residents in the dark about how and when their input will be used.
In response, CitizenLab and Konveio have teamed up to ensure local governments can match the right communications and engagement tools to each part of a project lifecycle. Local governments can now do it all; launch a project using CitizenLab's idea collection or survey tools; refine early drafts or mockups using Konveio's embedded document engagement platform; and then communicate out findings and reports, all in one place.
This webinar will cover the different types of community input and buy-in required as a project progresses, and identify different "sequences" or pre-defined engagement processes that align to specific types of projects, like comprehensive plans, climate action plans, and ARPA budgeting. Join us to learn and discuss:
The pros and cons of different types of engagement formats
Best practices or proven "sequences" for common types of project lifecycles
Research-backed practices for increasing all types of public engagement
How to open resident commenting to help develop your plan
How to determine the right way to engage for your next project
