Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Community Engagement Show and Tell - Kings Buildings

Do you work, study or volunteer with organisations or individuals in the Edinburgh area? If so, please come and share your experience with others over lunch!

This informal event is chance for you to:

  • Raise awareness of your community engagement work with others in the University
  • Share best practice with colleagues
  • Find out what others are doing and identify opportunities for collaboration

We hope that the legacy of this and other similar events will be an informal community of practice that keeps on sharing with one another.

This event is open to staff and students working or studying in any part of the University. 'Community engagement' is broadly defined for the purposes of the event, and could include:

  • Any sort of non-commercial relationship or activity
  • Partnering with an individual or organisation - public, private or voluntary - that is based in Edinburgh or the surrounding areas (including Fife, the Lothians and the Borders)
  • Something you do as part of your work/study, or in your own time

How should I share my work?

Slides are fine, as is an informal chat - whatever works for you. Please aim to speak for about 5 minutes.

If you plan to use slides, please send them no later than lunchtime of Monday the 25th September to

Broader context of this event

The University approved a new community engagement strategy in May 2016. Aims of the strategy include:

  • Establishing a community engagement community of practice across the University
  • Developing a holistic overview of the University's community engagement relationships, so that staff, students and external partners can be better supported with funding, training, etc.
