Ideas and Suggestions for Engaging with the Public


On this page, we have assembled a few suggestions that you can use as inspiration for your coming engagement with the public. We are constantly looking for more ideas, and we are eager to hear what people have done with success. If you want to tell us your story or share an idea for engagement, please contact us at so that we can put it up on this site.


We are especially eager to hear back from people who have taken steps to engage with the public as a result of our campaign, so please do let us know!
