Revamping an entire country's criminal justice system ... building an energy pipeline through 10 counties ... huge scenarios with the potential to disrupt thousands - millions - of lives. In both cases, the proponents recognized the many ways people would be affected, and determined to engage the public at every stage, in order to achieve the best results all around.
In Canada, the Federal Department of Justice received over 10,000 contributions in a three-month period on the question, "How would you change our criminal justice system to better serve Canadians?" Two months after the public dialogue ended, the government announced a series of changes to the system that addressed some of the concerns raised in that dialogue.
Justice Canada received the 2018 IAP2 Canada Core Values Award for "Creativity, Contribution and Innovation in the Field", and was also named Project of the Year.

In the USA, Williams Energy and Outreach Experts launched a huge public engagement campaign surrounding the building of the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project. Since ten counties in Eastern Pennsylvania were in the path of the pipeline, Williams set out to make sure all interests were considered and addressed; dozens of route changes were made as a result of the consultations, and numerous grassroots organizations were part of the conversation.
Williams, the Williams Foundation and Outreach Experts received the 2018 General Project Award at the IAP2 USA Core Values Awards and Atlantic Sunrise was also named project of the Year.
