The International Conference on Engaging Communities was an initiative of the United Nations and the Government of the State of Queensland, Australia.

The Conference was a resounding success, with over 2000 delegates from 44 countries attending to share experiences and network with colleagues old and new. Diverse issues relating to community engagement were discussed and speakers addressed the experiences, challenges and research which affect all citizens, governments and organisations alike. The Democracy Plus Panel on the Sunday evening and the passionate and challenging presentations from the keynote speakers during the Conference were highlights for many delegates.
