Community Deliberations: Practicalities for Positive Conversations
New Local partnered with Bridges Outcomes Partnerships for an Innovation Exchange on community deliberation. In this peer-learning session participants shared their experiences, ideas and reflections centred around three main challenges:
- building trust with communities;
- creating an organisational culture that values and enables community deliberation; and
- ensuring that councils are engaging with and hearing from all their communities.

The Innovation Series
Innovation Exchanges give participants from our member councils a space to step away from day-to-day activities and engage with peers from across the country. Each session addresses a big challenge or opportunity facing councils and their communities. Sessions are peer-led and practically-focused, so participants come away insights, ideas and learning to share with their teams.
