In a couple of months, I will participate in an international seminar in Amsterdam, discussing the “Building of a Shared City” through public participation. The focus is on public participation in urban infrastructure projects. Read my preliminary remarks on the subject of how social media tools can be used to this end. Download here.
Though I have researched the use of social media by government for public participation, I have not before examined its use within the more narrow context of large-scale urban infrastructure projects. As I have found, neither has anyone else! I will thus be developing this into a broader study and already have data behind the model depicted above (though not fully discussed in the preliminary remarks). I welcome your thoughts.
