Event description

FIND THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT.

The EngageTech Forums are interactive events designed to help public servants learn about and share their experiences using technology for community and stakeholder engagement.

It’s a technology showcase with a difference, where participation and peer-to-peer sharing is encouraged. You won’t just be presented to or pitched at. The events are designed using a participatory format so that you can share your lessons and discuss opportunities with others who are also experimenting with tools for engagement in your city.

We’ve even used experience design methods to make sure it’s actually engaging!

You’ll see the full spectrum of technologies available for consultation and engagement. We’re not just talking about online engagement and social media, the forum will cover all the different ways you can engage and collaborate using technology. At the EngageTech Forum you will see and hear about the ways technology can help you to:

  • understand and reach representative samples of communities
  • invite participation and recruit samples
  • collect, analyse and report data collected during consultation and crowdsourcing
  • to build and manage relationships and communities

The forums are being hosted in Wellington and Sydney in 2018 and we are looking for partners who would like to work with us to deliver these forums in other locations in 2019. Get in touch if you’re interested in being involved.

In this video, check out what participants in our 2014 forums said about their experiences:

We are also looking for government organisations to partner with in other locations. Get in touch if you’re interested in being involved.

Room to Read

In the lottery of life, where you are born and to whom you are born are completely random events that you have no control over. However, if you are born poor, to illiterate parents, in a low-income country, life is pretty much stacked against you. At Room to Read we believe that nochild should be told that he or she was “born in the wrong place, at the wrong time” and hence, will not be educated. Founded on the belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children, Room to Read works in collaboration with local communities, partner organisations and governments to transform the literacy skills of primary school children in low income countries, and ensure girls have the skills and support they need to stay in high school and complete their secondary education.
