Real-time reporting of election donations
Guardian Australia ran an event in Sydney tonight with their journalists talking about ideas to make Australia better. This idea was from David Marr. He is regarded as one of Australia's most influential commentators, and is the recipient of four Walkley awards for journalism
Community Consultation made Fun
Question: Do you want more car parking or more green space?
The District Council of Yankalilla, South Australia, went to the community to help determine the future of the Normanville Foreshore. Instead of using a tick box questionnaire they set up 6 stations which were staffed, so that alongside this visual activity was someone listening to the commentary and capturing comments. Council staff loved the opportunity to connect with the community and hear what they had to say.
This station clearly illustrates the preference of the community when it comes to the question of preference of green space vs car parking spaces.
