    • Integrity: Engagement should be transparent – clear in scope and purpose;
    • Inclusiveness: Engagement should be accessible and balanced – capturing a full range of values and perspectives;
    • Dialogue: Engagement should promote dialogue and open up genuine discussion. It should be supported by timely and accurate information – a space to weigh options and develop common understanding; and
    • Influence: The community should be able to see and understand the impact of their involvement.
    The City of Sydney is a member of the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) Australasia. We subscribe to the professional core values and ethics when conducting community engagement.
