The theme of the evening is “Creative approaches to knowledge exchange” with a focus on citizen engagement practices. This interactive event provides an engaging, fun, and relaxed opportunity for conference attendees to get to know one another over dinner while meeting inspiring practitioners who put knowledge mobilisation into practice.
Our approach to creative knowledge exchange will bring together conference attendees with special “dinner hosts” over a buffet dinner. The evening will feature fields as diverse as environmental stewardship, open science, biohacking and citizen participation in policymaking and will include simple interactive activities to help participants explore knowledge exchange. In particular we will explore how conference attendees can include citizen engagement methodologies within their own professional sectors.
