sharing information – that wasn’t previously shared, and doing it in places where people reside – eg instead of issuing a press release, now doing it where people live/reside ie twitter – government as platform – the role of government is to share info and private citizens should be leveraging the data to build applications etc.
Participation and Feedback We help to implement outreach campaigns and engage your community in the issues in creative ways using an integrated online and offline approach. We ensure that you collect community input in meaningful and useful ways.
Feedback + Participation Community organizing – logical progression is that if you share more information, people will want to participate more – people will want to have a say about that information – eg. If the quality of water in my community is polluted, then I might be inspired to do something about it.
Integration/Collaboration Ensuring that your organization can incorporate community input in meaningful ways that enhances community relationships, and builds long term sustainable engagement.
its great to share information and ask people to participate, but then what does that lead to? If you don’t use the information in a meaningful and useful way then people will abandon the community
