Describe your idea:
Adapt ‘They work for you’ and ‘Write to your MP’ to use with the diplomatic community. The data would include British Embassies around the world and other nations with Embassies here in the UK. The FCO publishes overseas embassies and UK embassies here: http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/about-the-fco/what-we-do/building-strong-relationships-ol/foreign-embassy-uk/ in PDF which could be scraped. This could be a new data set for the TWFY platform.
What problem does it solve?:
This would lower the barrier to engagement in contacting your representatives around the world. There is a travel safety app for this with possible commercial product with e.g. Lonely Planet. But the social and civic app would be to partner with an org like Amnesty International – allowing citizens to contact relevant embassies about human rights concerns. This takes traditional mass letter writing campaigns online for a new sector.
Type of idea: New feature for an existing project
