AmericaSpeaks organizes large-scale town-meetings on political issues and wants to get people engaged in the decission-making process. To widen the public outreach and to foster a diverse and representative participation, online methods play a more and more important role.
Susanna Haas Lyons from AmericaSpeaks visited the BerlinInJuly conference on eDemocracy, organized by politik-digital.de, MySociety.org, e-politik/e-Demokratie.org and hosted by the British Council. We asked her to explain, why it is important to engage people online.
