Engagement processes towards sustainable outcomes: Consensus building, dialogue, decision-making, dispute management and informed consent.
Bushtel is a central point for information about the regions in the Northern Territory, its people and communities, its cultural and historical influences and the statistics and data that allow for informed decision-making. It is named after the famous bush telegraph, the unofficial chain of communication through which news, information and rumours were spread throughout the country. The term became synonymous with the quick carriage of any tale worth telling.

International Association for Public Participation
IAP2 (International Association for Public Participation) is an international network of engagement practitioners who seek to promote and improve the practice of public participation or community engagement.
Incorporating individuals, governments, institutions and other entities that affect the public interest, IAP2 Australasia is the leading public participation association in Australasia.
Elements of the IAP2 methodology such as the spectrum of community engagement form the foundations of the Remote Engagement and Coordination Strategy. We continue to work in partnership with IAP2 to provide professional engagement training for public servants across the Northern Territory.
