Melbourne’s genuine community consultation

leave a comment »

 

Wikis seem to be the current communication darling in Australia.

The fact that Wikis allow people to digitally collaborate on projects has not been lost on political parties or pressure groups such as the environmental lobby.

However one particularly praiseworthy use is a Wiki established by the city of Melbourne to genuinely consult with the public about the future.  

The plan or vision for Melbourne  has been placed on the Wiki for people to comment or edit as they wish. 

This is an outstanding example of a public body embracing the concept of social media – releasing some control and forming a partnership with the community to jointly work for the good of all.  It will be interesting to watch how it goes.
