Sorry for not integrating this into Monday's email but I've realised I need your help with something (ideally by Monday if you're able to spare time). I'm meeting with my co-author Karen Bell next Tuesday to discuss a paper we're writing on public engagement processes and I've realised that we don't have enough responses to do anything meaningful yet. I'm wondering if any of you have experience managing and/or facilitating participatory processes and might be able to spare 5-10 mins to help answer some questions?
Take the survey now
We don’t want to bias responses by telling you too much about what we’re trying to achieve with this paper. However, our goal is to produce something that will be of both academic and practical value, that will enable you to design and facilitate more effective participatory processes. If you want to receive a copy of the paper when it is publish, please just leave your email address at the end of the survey (tip: if you can’t answer the survey but still want the paper, just leave all the questions blank and add your email in the last question).
If you can't help but think you know someone who might be able to help, I'd be really grateful if you can pass this email to them? If you're able to do anything by Monday, I'd be really grateful!
Thanks for your help with this!
