Public-i and eParticipate: webcasting of meetings

A nice package that supports the creation of indexed webcasts to record meetings and allow users to focus on the areas that are of interest to them. Because the technology opens up the operation of local government (for instance), citizens become more aware of the processes and more confident that they will be able to make a difference.

The package has been used in Slovakia, Spain, the UK and Ireland – so it’s pretty flexible. It would be great to be able to integrate it with existing tools and CMSs – Gov2DemOSS and CivicSpace/CiviCRM for instance.
