Public Participation
Public participation is the active engagement of members of the public, service users or customers in
service planning, delivery and evaluation. More simply put, it means involving the people that will be influenced by a decision in the decision-making process. Decisions are made together, with consideration to others, and applying the same principles to later actions. Public participation can be used by policy-makers, businesses, NGOs or really anyone who makes decisions that influence other people.

Examples of public participation:
-    Students are involved in the drafting of an education reform bill
-    Local residents are consulted about a large construction project in their home town
-    Children are involved in the planning of a family holiday
