Strong, vibrant communities rely on their community members to share in the decisions which help to maintain and improve the community. Taught by experts from the University of New Hampshire and University of Maine, the Community Engagement Academy will teach the fundamentals of community engagement and share new tools for bringing all voices into the discussion. We will visit three Seacoast communities where local speakers will discuss community engagement efforts and participants will gain hands-on experience using various engagement tools.
Who should attend? Community volunteers, decision-makers, municipal officials, students, non-profit staff and board members. Those working in economic development, land conservation, community planning, health, housing and anyone working to improve their community.

The Community Engagement Academy is a partnership of University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension; University of New Hampshire Office of Engagement and Academic Outreach; University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Maine Sea Grant.
