The field of community and public engagement (CPE) is rapidly growing and changing. CPE covers a wide range of activities, and different actors in the field may have different perceptions of what CPE means and involves. It's therefore important to look at the whole landscape of CPE and understand where your own activities fit in. At the 2018 Wellcome International Engagement Workshop, a number of speakers and group discussions focused on mapping and analysing this landscape, as well as ideas and strategies on how the field can continue to grow.
