Wendy Sarkissian Addresses PIA on Topic of NIMBYism

On Tuesday, September 3, 2013, Wendy Sarkissian presented a lecture on the topic of NIMBYism to the Queensland Chapter of the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) in Brisbane.
The event was part of PIA’s “HOW TO … 2013” seminar series, a professional development program for planners. The event on September 3 addressed how planners can undertake effective community engagement.
Wendy’s presentation focused on how psychology and sociology can inform our understandings of so-called NIMBY behavior.
