Event description

Description

Welcome to the first meeting of the Edinburgh Community Engagement Forum!

This informal lunchtime session is open to all University staff and students, and members of the Students' Association. This first meeting is a chance to:

  • Update other members on your community engagement activities
  • Get others' thoughts on your burning issues (e.g when to apply for PVG registration, how to evaluate community engagement activities, ethical implications of community engagement activities)
  • Suggest ways you'd like the Forum to be run in the future (format, meeting frequency, online discussions, etc.)

'Community engagement' is broadly defined for the purposes of the event, and could include:

  • Any sort of non-commercial relationship or activity
  • Partnering with an individual or organisation - public, private or voluntary - that is based in Edinburgh or the surrounding areas (including Fife, the Lothians and the Borders)
  • Something you do as part of your work/study, or in your own time (although we appreciate you may not wish to share the latter)

Event agenda

12:00 – Lunch available (may even be a wee mince pie...)

12.20 – Updates from Forum members (2 mins each, no slides please!)

13:00 – Group discussions of burning issues you flagged when you registered

14:00 – End

Broader context of this event

The University approved a new community engagement strategy in May 2016. Aims of the strategy include:

  • Establishing a community engagement community of practice across the University
  • Developing a holistic overview of the University's community engagement relationships, so that staff, students and external partners can be better supported with funding, training, etc.
