WeGov Toolbox - Politicians engage with Citizens
2nd WeGov Workshop
Wednesday, 5th September 2012 in Norway
WeGov (Where eGovernment meets the eSociety), the innovative project which aims to improve the engagement between policy-makers and citizens, welcomes stakeholders to the 2nd and final WeGov Workshop, within the 11th Conference on Electronic Government - IFIP EGOV 2012, on the 3rd - 6th September, 2012 in Kristiansand, Norway.
The 2nd WeGov Workshop will be held on Wednesday 5th September 2012, during Track A - EGOV: Workshop D, with the title "WeGov Toolbox - Politicians engage with Citizens" (14.00 - 18.00, Room B2-001).
The 2nd WeGov Workshop aims to demonstrate the final version of the WeGov toolbox to the scientific community of e-governance and e-government and to explore potential use-cases and end-user.
A panel of experts will firstly showcase the implementation of the WeGov field trials (use-cases) and secondly will give a live demonstration of the finalized toolbox. Additionally the implications of the WeGov solution for policy-makers will be presented and finally a round table open discussion will take place among the workshop participants in order to explore on new potential end-users and how they might use the toolbox for which purposes.
About the project: WeGov has been funded with support from the European Commission under the SEVENTH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME THEME ICT 2009.7.3 ICT for Governance and Policy Modelling. The project aims to provide the tools and techniques for closing the loop between policy makers and the citizens, taking advantage of the plethora of well established social networking sites. These tools will enable policy makers to move away from limitations involved in the current practice of government hosted websites and instead to make use of the high levels of participation and rich discussions that already take place in existing social networking communities. The pilots are conducted in Germany and within the European Parliament.
