Be inspired, challenged and renewed at the NCCPE’s flagship event.
About the conference
An opportunity for those with a stake in public and community engagement to come together, explore new ideas, share new practice, and co-create new ways to approach ongoing challenges. Whether we come together online or in person, Engage is always lively, informative and provocative – and never the same conference twice.
"Every time I attend Engage I go back to work with lots of ideas to implement and reflect upon after being inspired and challenged through the sessions."
