How the Internet is Creating a New Democracy Online
Wednesday, 30 May 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
On the evening of Wednesday May 30, the crew from online democracy startup OurSay, will be hosting a workshop at HubMelbourne, to talk about how this change is taking place and how it is affecting the interaction between media, politics and citizens.
OurSay is a social enterprise, created in 2010, that uses social media as a fundamental component of its outreach and engagement with existing users, key stakeholders and potential partners.
OurSay works as a facilitator between ordinary citizens and the people in charge, holding online forums where users submit questions to key political figures, thought leaders and captains of industry. The users who ask the most popular questions then get them answered by the decision-maker in the form of a video or a live town-hall style forum. OurSay has worked with organisations such as ABC’s Q&A, The Sunday Age, Crikey.com.au & The Melbourne Press Club.
