Genuine Engagement Tool

Ever wondered if government engagement with community really is a genuine participatory process?

The Genuine Engagement Tool (GET) is designed to help communities reflect on their experience of government engagements. Using the tool, communities can get clear insights on how they can keep their own power and agency in government engagements and how they can communicate more transparently about how governments can engage better.

You can get an open source copy of the Genuine Engagement Tool for community groups here and you can read the story of how it was developed here.

A brief video explaining the tool and how to use it is here.

Please download it, use it and feed back to us what you think.
