Description

Community Engagement work stream

We hosted a one-day event titled ‘Democratic Sector Day’, which brought together 70 participants, including researchers, policy makers, and public engagement practitioners from a wide range of policy areas and sectors (third, public and private). The day was designed in collaboration with 15 partner organisations to respond to current shifts in policy towards creating a more participatory democracy in post-referendum Scotland. Accordingly, the key theme was how to build capacity for community engagement across organisations and communities. The aim was to map ‘who is doing what and how’ currently, and to find out what are the gaps in terms of research and practice.
