Future challenges & strategic opportunities in the field of participation

1 min readJul 14, 2022

We are running a series of workshops on how best to involve residents in policy making as part of our renewed work developing a participation framework. These workshops will bring peers together with researchers & and community actors to discuss and debate key problems and discover strategic solutions to the many ways we do participation in policy making, and how in practice, we involve residents meaningfully in policy making. The workshops will be held online and will be convened by Dr Darren Sharpe, (University College London CAPE Policy Fellow).

At the session, Darren, introduced the workshop series and explain the goals of the Participation in Policy Making Policy Lab. We will also explore ways to improve our existing mechanisms/systems by involving residents in policy-making based on your practice.

You can see the video session above and the outputs from the interactive session below:
