The RSE Public Engagement Advisory Group (PEG) was set up in 2019 through the merging of the Meetings Committee and the Young People’s Committee on a pilot basis. PEG is chaired by the Programme and Young People Committee Chairs and the membership comprises of Fellows and Young Academy of Scotland members who have expertise in public engagement across a wide range of disciplines.

Group purpose

The purpose of the Group is to advise on the development and delivery of all RSE public engagement activities. The Group’s remit includes:

Ensuring our public engagement activities complement each other and align with our Strategic Framework and Public Engagement Strategy.

Identifying and targeting diverse audiences to be served by our public engagement activities.

Considering any links between public engagement activities and other RSE activities, such as policy engagement.

Supporting the development and delivery of a rolling programme of public engagement activities through advising on approaches and suggesting potential contributors and partners.

Monitoring and advising on any changes that will ensure the successful delivery of our public engagement programme.

Considering and deciding the recipient(s) of RSE public engagement prizes.

Delegating advisory responsibilities to Working Groups where this best serves the successful delivery of an activity.

Group activities

PEG play a key role in the RSE programme of events, our Young People’s programme and actively contribute to our Post-Covid-19 Futures Commission
