With the recent appointment of our DNAire Engagement Officer, Simon Watts, we are forging ahead with more details of our DNAire project. Simon brings a wealth of engagement expertise and will be working on the community engagement aspects of the developing our Stage 2 bid.
An ex-teacher, married to a teacher and with two kids himself he is well-versed in what attracts young people to projects such as DNAire. We look forward to developing successful ways to approach schools and help their pupils (and teachers!) learn more about our great river.
Over the coming weeks, we will be exploring:
Baseline public attitudes and desires
Promotion and publicity
Students and apprenticeships
Activity plan development
…before finalising delivery costs ans writing the Stage 2 bid.
Lots of work to do, but this is such an exciting project and DNAire will trigger the renaissance of the River Aire. If you would like to now more about our project, please contact Simon by email.
