Webinar: Social Media & Public Engagement – The New Crossroads

  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Webinar


Registration is closed
The past decade has seen governments and organizations increasingly engaging communities in decisions that affect them. While in-person consultations have been the traditional “go to” method of reaching out to various communities, the widespread use of social media is changing the way public participation takes place.

Social media has provided governments and organizations with both opportunities and challenges. Sponsors and public participation practitioners are thinking about how to best engage stakeholders and the general public online, in their preferred social networks, and the role that these online conversations play in a greater engagement process.

Join Joseph Peters from Ascentum for this webinar, where he will illustrate through various examples of social media participation:
  • Why governments and other organizations should consult and engage their communities (stakeholders, citizens, employees, shareholders) using social media
  • How social media and other collaborative online tools have changed the way in which engagement takes place
  • What they have learned from using social media to engage communities

Please note that in your confirmation email you will receive a webinar registration link. You will need to register with the webinar system to gain access to the webinar!
