Virtual Civic Spaces Bringing communities together Listening Communities Conference 25 th  February 2011 Catherine Howe
This is not a session about technology The most important thing to remember about the virtual world is that it is actually  very real
And so are the communities ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],Citizenscape a product by Public-i
We are talking about changing the balance in our engagement towards the digital channels
The most important thing is making it relevant to the community and finding the conversations that are already happening
Why Digitally led? ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
A short segue on the Network Society ,[object Object],[object Object],Citizenscape a product by Public-i

The Social Web has its own culture Citizenscape a product by Public-i

What does this mean on a more practical level? ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],Citizenscape a product by Public-i
Not forgetting digital inclusion ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],Citizenscape a product by Public-i
The social web is about the people and the content This is no longer a question of getting people to visit your space – you need to engage with them in theirs
And there are a variety of conversations going on Citizenscape: a product by Public-i
Mainstream tools – don’t build stuff that already exists Citizenscape a product by Public-i
This is what we think it looks like Citizenscape a product by Public-i
Unexpected things will happen ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],Citizenscape a product by Public-i
At the heart of this are really fantastic events Citizenscape a product by Public-i
And the right digital wrapper Citizenscape a product by Public-i
Our objective it that when you leave the conversations continue

Admiral’s Way, Test Valley  Citizenscape a product by Public-i  http://www.admiralsway.org.uk/
Bourneville Village Citizenscape a product by Public-i  http://bournvillevillage.com/
None of these have been created or run by the Council though they may have been helped
Previously you controlled the resources and so you knew you would be involved How will you make sure you are an essential part in the process?
People are talking…… ……they’re just not talking to you
Why should I care when I am facing massive budget cuts?
Because you need to stay relevant ,[object Object],[object Object],Citizenscape a product by Public-i
There are incremental savings to be made ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Because the conversations will happen anyway Its government’s responsibility to make sure the outcomes are democratic
Co-production – what do you mean? ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],Citizenscape a product by Public-i
To do this you need a co-productive space LOCAL CIVIC SPACE Presented by Catherine Howe, Chief Executive Public-i
For example….. Citizenscape: a product by Public-i
As your communities start to self organise more effectively you need to understand where you add value to this process Its not about resources anymore
