The Engage Festival is an online extravaganza that will bring together all of those keen to support the role of public engagement in reimagining our world. There's a variety of sessions to provide information, inspiration and opportunities to network.

*UPDATE*

Can't make the sessions but still interested in keeping up to date with all the important highlights? Not to worry! Jamie Gallagher, a freelance public engagement and science communication professional, is hosting a livestream every day this week so you can catch up on his YouTube channel here.

 

With Covid-19 redefining our world, there has never been a more important time to stay connected, so the folks at the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) have changed how they normally do their Engage Conference, and are instead offering a series of online sessions.

The Engage Festival is an online extravaganza that will take place from Monday 30th November – Friday 4th of December. Bringing together all of those keen to support the role of public engagement in reimagining our world, the programme is tailorable, with delegates being able to develop their own programme that fits their interests and their availability.

Everyone’s experience of our current context is different, so they have timetabled their content to be suitable for a range of availabilities and engagement preferences. You'll be able to curate your own unique engagement experience, picking and choosing from the options on offer – and enabling a conference that is tailored to you.

Sessions and experiences on offer include:

  • Training for using digital platforms for engagement
  • Networking sessions
  • Plenaries on funding, 'place-based' engagement, responsible research and innovation, and looking to the future of engagement
  • Project spotlights - allowing you to hear about a range of different approaches
  • Sessions looking at equality, diversity and inclusion issues and solutions
  • The background and history of public engagement

And much more.

 

The full week pass (£120 +VAT) will give you access to everything taking place across the five days.
