Local E-Democracy: Online Issues Forums
While the internet has clearly revolutionized the way that people communicate across distances, it is also having a fairly dramatic effect on how people communicate and organize within their own community. E-Democracy.Org works with local community groups to set-up e-democracy projects at the city or neighborhood level. Tim Erickson, of E-Democracy.Org, will discuss how communities can use online tools and facilitation techniques to create a virtual town hall meeting, where members of the community and can connect, anytime and from anywhere, with each other and local decision makers to discuss important issues facing the community.
