Citizens designing public services (in Edinburgh on 30 June)

I’m hoping the outcomes of this meeting are made public – it would also be interesting to find out more about the background to the meeting, and what techniques are used for managing the day…

  • On Tuesday 30th June, we have what might be a fascinating session with members of the City of Edinburgh Council, their employees, and a group of Edinburgh citizens / residents / customers / clients / service users.

    We will have the opportunity to describe

    * what is it like to live in Edinburgh at the moment, while we are trying to Combat the Recession
    * what we think of Community Transport
    * how we might use web2 and citizens ideas on current service to re-design services for the benefit of the user

    We have a number of elderly people, a number of young people and some middle-aged as well. There is a diverse group, and we are all very grateful to the Councillors for agreeing to meet.
