WeGov will participate at the Social Networking and eParticipation workshop, in May 2010

 

WeGov will participate at the Social Networking and eParticipation workshop, in the framework of the 4th International Conference on Electronic Democracy, Centre for E-Government of in Danube-University Krems, in Austria.

The workshop will take place the 7th May 2010. This workshop is organized by Ella Taylor-Smith and Ralf Lindner and follows on from Social Networking Tools and Widgets to Promote or Expand eParticipation Initiatives held at eDem 09.


The focus is on using SN tools, specifically to support involvement (rather than enabling involvement through publicity).

  • We're interested in the tools used -both brands and type.
  • We're interested in the kind of involvement supported -individual or collaborative, opinions or experiences, text or media?
  • We're interested in the policy-making goals - who receives the input and how can it be used?
  • We'd to look at this in terms of a 5-stage policy cycle
