Join us for a dynamic two part conversation on building inclusive online community engagement in neighborhoods.

  • 1. Seattle Neighbors Online Networking – Who is doing what?
  • 2. Inclusive Community Engagement Online – Lessons to adapt and deploy locally

 

The gathering will be facilitated by Minnesota-based E-Democracy.org. They are in town for the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation national conference starting October 12. The event will have a dynamic mix of local and national participants excited to learn from each other.


1. Seattle Neighbors Online Networking – Who is doing what?

Part one will start with a friendly networking roundtable where you are invited to share a few minutes about your online neighbor connecting efforts or put your “I am just getting started” questions on the table. Let’s highlight great online neighbor connecting efforts already happening in Seattle.


Together, we will briefly introduce conversation-based neighbor connecting “tools” many of us use like simple e-mail lists, forums, Facebook Groups, NextDoor, etc. and dig into why, when, where, how (public v. private) as well as introduce inclusive outreach and engagement that matters to diverse local communities. Seattle has one of nation’s most vibrant placeblog and parent forum scenes which in addition to local online groups/lists are neighbor to neighbor connecting instigators.

 

2. Inclusive Community Engagement Online – Lessons to adapt and deploy locally 


Part two will provide an in-depth presentation with extended discussion on E-Democracy’s BeNeighbors.org outreach effort to build inclusive and integrated online community engagement in lower income, highly diverse, high immigrant neighborhoods in St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Why inclusion? Online neighbor connecting is useful and powerful for those who discover it, yet among the divides, the Neighbors Online study of the Pew Internet and American Life project found that households making 75K a year are 5 times more likely than those making 50K or less to be a member of a neighborhood e-mail list or forum.

With 2 years of pilot funding from the Ford Foundation and now extended St. Paul funding from the Knight Foundation through 2014, the BeNeighbors.org effort hopes to exchange lessons with projects around Seattle and beyond. By openly sharing our challenges and insights, we hope to learn from the work of other great projects.
