Upcoming Webinar: Virtual Public Involvement – Extending Our Reach

Virtual Public Involvement – Extending Our Reach
Date: April 25, 2019
Time: 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm ET

Public involvement tools and practices have expanded and shifted dramatically over the past decade due to changes in communications, technology, and lifestyles. As transportation professionals, we can no longer expect the public to come to us, but need to reach them in their everyday lives-online, at home, and in chosen gathering spaces. To help practitioners navigate this changing environment, FHWA is developing a series of 12 short videos highlighting innovative and proven public involvement techniques for today’s transportation plans and projects. The techniques will also be featured in a webinar series, beginning in April 2019.

This webinar, the first in the series, will feature speakers from agencies featured in the first three videos, which cover the following techniques:

  • Meeting-in-a-box
  • Pop-up outreach
  • Interactive maps
