New e-participation Pilot Launch Looking at the Use of Gaming Techniques

Chris Quigley, the Director of DELIB, sent an interesting message to the DO-WIRE discussion list today. Working with their partners at the New Economics Foundation, DELIB has put together an interactive pilot of e-DEMOCS for use by Napier University’s Teledemocracy unit. This pilot looks at how gaming technology like e-DEMOCS can be used to engage young people in difficult policy issues – in this case RadioActive Waste Management. Focus groups will be taking place in Scotland over the next couple of weeks, and results of the pilot will be published in June. Chris also mentioned a paper they’ve produced on using gaming techniques in citizen engagement. Chris, who is based in London, can be reached at chris@rubberductions.com.
