  • Fukushima Nuclear Disaster with Dr Wakako Hironaka, former Director General for the Environment Agency of Japan and Member of  the House of Councillors (2010);

  • Who Said Women Cant be Engineers – 2011/12 Royal Academy of Engineering Ingenious Crowd Wise project outcomes;
  • Sheffield Moors Consultation.

Setting up the content and laying it out using Adobe InDesign, which is a new product to us, presented challenges especially as we had to change one or two features to keep up with developments.

Learnt a great deal from the process, crucially to assemble all the material including images and make placemarks for links before starting work on writing it all up.

About actionforinvolvment

We're an independent think tank, founded in 2006 to bring people in our communities together with policymakers and stakeholders. We create space often in a workshop format to pool ideas, develop networks and tackle hot topics. Since 2009, we’ve focused on the sustainability agenda such as: climate change, energy, housing, technology, transport with interest in:education, health, welfare, regulation and enforcement. Our latest project is funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering Ingenious Grant and our next event on 27th June 2013 includes George Monbiot with other high level environmental policy makers.
