Strengthening local democracy through dialogue | Prototype 4: Overview of existing dialogues
This idea enables politicians and clerks to easily get an overview of all the ongoing dialogues that the district is having with its residents. If a politician or clerk wants to have citizen dialogue about a certain topic, they can use the platform to search for summaries of previous dialogues, find upcoming dialogues and connect with the responsible person for the dialogues. This way politicians and clerks can benefit from all the dialogues that are currently being held in the district and put the gathered insights to a good use. During our research we felt that the opportunity of collaboration between clerks and politicians regarding citizen dialogue is yet to be explored.
We developed this idea further into two ´mock up´ webpages showing all the existing dialogues, including summaries of dialogues, upcoming events, and contact details of the person responsible for the dialogue. Politicians and clerks would be able to access these pages if they are interested in reading up on and/or participating in a certain dialogue.
The pages can be accessed by copying the link below. The fictional dialogue bubble called "Bredäng Baby" is clickable and it looks like a new dialogue has just been added!
