Engage Liverpool CIC is a social enterprise which is run by volunteers who live in the apartments of the Waterfront and City Centre.

It is a fully democratic institution where all Board members are elected by residents who are members of Engage and who hold the Board to account at each AGM. We care passionately about sustainable living in the City Centre and are committed to making it a place where people would want to live out the whole of their lives and not just for a brief transitional period in their youth.

We have run projects that make a positive contribution to the liveability of the City Centre and Waterfront (Neighbourhood Planning in the Baltic; Liverpool Air Project; Blue-Green Liverpool). We encourage and promote debate about urban living in our annual Seminar Series; 2015: Liveable Liverpool - apartment living in a European city ; 2016: Reclaiming the City - from consumer and stranger to citizen and neighbour ; 2017: UNESCO WHS: A Status Worth Fighting For? ; 2018 we brought 3 World Heritage Site cities to Liverpool as WHS Cities of Inspiration. In 2019 we focused on the emerging Liverpool City Region with a series called Playing Our Part where we looked at cycling, homelessness and devolution. During the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 we held a series called The Delightful City and also ran a project called Our Big Neighbourhood Dinner Table. In 2021 we looked at Destination Liverpool - Tourists versus Residents? We have held Workshops to assist residents and leaseholders to better manage the apartment buildings where they live. We are available for direct consultations and support on any issues facing City Centre residents.

In 2024 we are running a seminar series called Sustainable Liverpool . We want to respond appropriately to the climate emergency and to our city's net-zero commitment.
