#PEPTogether online get-togethers

An informal online space for engagement professionals

#PEPTogether monthly online get-togethers

As we entered into the COVID-19 pandemic and tried to make sense of what was happening in the world, in the UK, in our universities, in our neighbourhoods, in our lives, it was important to create space to think together. Between March 2020 and December 2021, the PEPtogethers provided such a rich place to engage together, to share some of the highs and lows of life during a pandemic; and to support one another as we adapted to new ways of working, thinking and doing. The NCCPE were been delighted to work with the sector to create spaces for really useful conversation, which you can see summarised in the reports below.

We are now running quarterly online PEPtogethers for members of the PEP Network – so do join us if you haven’t already (it’s free!). If you would like to participate in the events, but aren’t able to join the network, we will be delighted to welcome you as a guest. Please email jack.kerrigan@uwe.ac.uk if you would like to join the events.
