Getting Citizens Engaged in your Transparency and Accountability Work

Dave Whiteland, part of mySociety’s international outreach team, will be taking part in a Transparency and Accountability Initiative webinar this Wednesday: Getting Citizens Engaged in your Transparency and Accountability Work.

How is that spreadsheet going to engage and inspire people? You need to translate data into information that will change or impact their lives. During this webinar, you’ll get an understanding of how to identify the right data and how to package it to effectively connect with your audience. We will also look at creative ways to motivate citizens to give you data.

Dave will draw on mySociety’s experience of helping groups around the world set up FixMyStreet, Freedom of Information and parliamentary monitoring sites based on our own code.

Everyone is welcome to attend. You just need to register at and then on Wednesday the 25th of June, at 15:00 UK time, visit


FundamentalsThe content of this webinar is taken from the Transparency and Accountability Initiative’s new publicationFundamentals for Using Technology in Transparency and Accountability Organisations” and is hosted by the author, Dirk Slater.
