The Pandemic and The Public – How do you stay informed and involved?

Hearing views about the nature and quality of public debate, and experiences of how people have been informed and involved in decision making during this pandemic is critical to us understanding how we can model better public debate and better participative practice across all our work. To kickstart the process Louise Macdonald and Talat Yaqoob, Co-Chairs of the Commission’s Public Debate and Participation Working Group are holding an online drop-in session to start exploring the views, ideas and experiences of as wide a group of people as possible.

We really hope you can join us for however long you want or can spare. Ask a question, share your experience, or just listen in – all welcome. This is a drop-in event so please feel free to join whenever is convenient.
