Citizenscape is a simple, manageable and cost-effective way for you to start getting involved in all the local social media conversations that are already taking place without you.

If you haven’t already got a cast iron, watertight plan for how your council manages social media, then Citizenscape can help.

It works by bringing together the conversations that are already online in the social webspaces that people are already using and helps form it into one local civic conversation with the tools that you need to manage it. Moving forward you can also use these tools to add your voice to the conversation.

Why?  Because the social web is not a trend that can be ignored and it can transform the way that government and citizens work together.

All talk...?

There’s been a lot of talk about the democratic deficit.

There's been a lot of talk about the digital divide and the potential of the internet and social media.

So what can Local Authorities do with all this talk?
