Adopt a Councillor with Andrew Coulson
February 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
The ‘Adopt a Councillor’ idea was born from the need to increase community interest in the role of Council and local government, especially amongst children, and broadly to progress inclusion in democratic processes. Now the idea is written down, will anyone use it?
Presented by Engage 2 Act board member Andrew Coulson, this webinar will look at the ‘Adopt a Councillor’ concept and then explore how it works by looking at a case study from America where it has been used.
This webinar is the first in our guest webinar series for 2018 where we connect practitioners and community engagement experts with ideas and tools to improve the engagement profession.
He tweets, pins and blogs about it. Never one to say no, since moving to Australia, Andrew is always looking for opportunities to learn and build on his experience of #communityengagement. Developed in the valleys of Wales, the farming towns of Derbyshire and the diverse housing estates of North London Andrew is trained to be person centred and be visual in communication. Interested in how online can be used to complement tools and techniques that have been adapted and developed for many years face to face, Andrew is now ready for the next step in ensuring engagement is meaningful, timely and co-produced.
Andrew currently works for SA Water in Adelaide leading the customer engagement around their 2020-2024 Regulatory Business Proposal.
