Digital and social media changes government's relationship with citizens and businesses.
We help align communications, consultation and future engagement strategies around the cloud, agile methods, open policy, open data and new social spaces. Our knowledge helps our clients to understand the costs, benefits and risks of digital and make evidence-based decisions for stronger democratic futures.
We help parliaments and representatives to engage more effectively than ever before.
Digital and social media improves education, outreach, information provision and engagement. We identify how, where and when digital can help members and parliamentary officials better connect, widen consultation and increase public awareness and understanding.
Whether it's crowdsourcing policy, open data or social networks, digital and social media support communities and individuals to engage more effectively.
We support organisations to think strategically about digital engagement and new models for democratic renewal. Our work connects online and off-line methods, develops strategies for information sharing and promoting digital inclusion and information literacy.
Social media has created a step-change for campaigns beyond the world of static websites. Political and issues-based campaigns now have a wide range of tools and techniques available and we help you to prioritise these and develop strategies to maximise their benefits. We understand the value of digital media for lobbying and influencing decision makers and advise on how to do this effectively as part of your campaign.
Often referred to as 'smart cities' this aspect of our work focusses on how digital media makes the places that we live more connected, engaged and sustainable. From rural broadband and urban wifi strategies, the integration of digital into public spaces to support enhanced civic engagement and the use of open data and internet-connected devices to provide real-time updates on the world around us.
