Last Teacambs of the year – 28 November 2013

by on 11 November 2013

Hello everyone!

This month will be our last Teacambs for the year as the last Thursday of December is Boxing day this year.

We’re still in the process of confirming our final speaker for this event, and will update the website as soon as possible.

We’ve got a number of visitors lined up for 2014 from outside the county, including some specialists in community engagement using social media as well as some experts from Whitehall and Westminster. We also hope to have updates not just from local councils on what they’ve been doing with social and digital media, but also from other public sector organisations and higher education bodies about what they have been doing too.

Other things that are on our horizon too include:

  • Our first Teacambs gathering outside of Cambridge
  • A skills-sharing event similar to CommsCamp 2013 where we can bring lots of you from across the county together for an ‘unConference’ style event to share problems and ideas with each other and with some of the brightest minds in the field of local government social media.

One of the things that we’ve been able to do in recent months is to get in touch with a number of student and university societies – both Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University. Throughout 2014 we hope to see how public sector institutions across the county can collaborate with some of the exciting work coming out of these societies.

2013 has also taught us that digital inclusion remains an issue across Cambridgeshire. Our good friends at the Government Digital Service in Cabinet Office have now taken over as policy lead for digital inclusion for central government (see here). One of the ‘watching briefs’ that we’ll have is on how that policy develops – as well as looking for opportunities for how you can feed into it. If you and/or your organisation (irrespective of your sector, so private and voluntary as well as public) are interested in this policy area, please let us know.

Otherwise, hope to see you at Teacambs

  • When: 4:30pm on Thursday 28 November 2013
