NACC Consulting Director Howard Nielsen cut his teeth on community engagement whilst working as state co-ordinator of parent and community interaction in schools and conducting hundreds of community engagement projects in Queensland. During his work with the Ministerial Consultative Council on Curriculum he wrote the core piece for a paper adopted by Parliament on 'Active versus Passive Consultation Processes'.
Howard is currently co-facilitating the Connecting Kilcoy Community project and the NACC team continues its pro bono involvement in the large scale Samford Green Street and Samford Commons projects.
Howard has also designed and delivered Sustainability Roadmaps for the Moreton Bay Region; a widespread community engagement process for social planning at Ipswich City Council; the Samford Green Streets program; a national community, government and industry engagement process for reassessing the criteria for success in life and workplaces; and, working as a community volunteer on the Samford Commons project.
NACC’s approach focuses on engaging people at a personal level in conversations about their individual and collective aspirations.
