Lead the way
We need to engage citizens, citizen leaders and citizen-serving NGOs in putting evidence at the centre of everyday life.
The Evidence Commission secretariat is actively pursuing stakeholder engagement and thought leadership opportunities to engage citizens and citizen-serving NGOs in putting evidence at the centre of everyday life, in the following ways:
- Establishing a citizen leadership group involving our commissioners and secretariat
- Curating resources from citizen-serving NGOs on the Evidence Commission website that can support action
- Engaging citizen leaders and citizen-serving organizations and encouraging them to take a specific leadership role by, for example, raising awareness about the Evidence Commission’s recommendations.
