Teacambs for June & July

by on 24 June 2013

Hello everyone

There have been a few things that have happened locally that might be of interest – two of which we are going to cover at the next couple of teacambs gatherings.

June’s Teacambs: Networked Councillors

This is a Public-i project that is covering the East of England. The meeting that Puffles went along to on 17th June is summarised here. Given the more informal nature of social media, what are the expectations of local councillors and citizens given the move towards people using social media in greater numbers? What are the opportunities and risks?

One of the other things people may want to look at is how to engage with councillors using social media where they have an official role within an organisation. Is this something that should be reserved for ‘formal correspondence’ only, or is there a role where councillors, officials (in particular in ‘partner’ organisations such as hospitals, colleges, the job centre and the emergency services) can engage with citizens at a local level?

If you’d like to come along to June’s Teacambs (and/or for a glass of wine afterwards), please sign up here.

July’s Teacambs: Shape Your Place Cambridge & South Cambs

Ashley Whittaker who runs Shape Your Place Cambridge will be joining us to explain how everything’s going as SYP expands to cover the whole of the county. There has been comment already on SYP Cambridge – including here from Richard Taylor, and also here from myself at A Dragon’s Best Friend.

Who needs to do what to ensure SYP Cambridge is a success?
