Together with the wider CivicUEA team, Johanna has supported a wealth of university civic activities. These include running multiple ‘Open Space’ public events throughout Norwich and East Anglia. The events were framed around exploring with our regional stakeholders and different publics, the role of a civic university. All the conversations from these meetings have been captured in a series of books and will collectively formulate the basis of the updated UEA Charter, which will be open for signatories in October 2023 launched as part of the UEA’s 60th birthday.
