Webinar Series: Engagement During Pandemic Uncertainties 

Posted on August 2, 2020


davenport series

Join ELGL and the Davenport Institute for Public Engagement for a four-part webinar series on engagement during the COVID-19 pandemic!

As local governments continue to wrestle with challenges of balancing community health and community connection during what is becoming a new normal of uncertainty, ELGL and the Davenport Institute are excited to continue the conversations we facilitated earlier this spring.

This second, 4-part webinar series will explore how local governments are engaging residents as they seek to reopen, or in some cases to scale back reopenings, how they are moving forward with projects and programs that can’t be postponed forever, and how they can partner with others to create community in the midst of this ongoing crisis. 

Join us as we look at: 

  • How cities are working with their residents to wrestle with difficult decisions about reopening in the face of constantly changing public health information 
  • How cities are working with school districts to engage parents, students, and other community members as they explore plans for the fall
  • As some parts of the city begin to reopen, how cities are thinking about reintroducing small scale city events, meetings, workshops, etc. What social distancing measures can be implemented, and other safety concerns
  • What are some of the creative solutions to virtual engagement, connection, and a sense of community that have come out of the pandemic? How can local government leaders bring those into their communities?

All four webinars will be at 10 am Pacific Time (11 pm Mountain/ 12 pm Central/ 1 pm Eastern). RSVP is required; use the links below to sign up.
