Many of us are either the initiators or on the receiving end of engagement or outreach activities by local public sector organisations. We build relationships and often work in partnership with our local council, police service, NHS, fire service and others.
Participation Now is part of the Open University’s online presence and is calling for short contributions on the subject.
“To kick-start a debate about the aims and effects of contemporary participatory public engagement initiatives, we invite short, blog-post style contributions (250-1000 words) from people who are interested or involved in this area. Contributions may address one or more of the following questions:
What can be achieved through participation and public engagement activities? How can such aims be met? What, for you, counts as ‘success’ ? . . . “
