FULLY BOOKED - contact Lisa Adlington via lisa.adlington@uwe.ac.uk for waiting list enquiries.

The theme for the 2018 NCCPE (National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement) Conference will be ‘Framing new futures for public engagement’. The conference will look back over the past 10 years of engagement to take stock of lessons learned, and consider what’s next for engagement. The conference will explore: visions for public engagement (e.g. how the landscape continues to morph/change, what will it look like 10 years from now, what opportunities are currently missing), personal journeys (an opportunity to share stories and experiences of engagement), and perspectives on practice ( exploring how to make engagement work better).
