We’re uniquely placed to engage with our local community and the wider public to develop sustainable initiatives. We will engage at the regional, national and international levels through our established connections and networks, as well as our curriculum.
Through community engagement, we’ll find out how we can play a key role in promoting and sustaining mutually beneficial relationships with local and broader communities. This might be to open up physical spaces for the public to share knowledge and expertise or to support staff and student volunteers in local projects.
The Goodlife Community Co-operative is a great example of community engagement in action. It’s organised by residents who work with others to support people, animals and the earth. Visit Goodlife Community Co-operative’s Facebook page to find out more.
