Networked conversation and participation

Participation events

Participation in the Australian Federal Government’s 2009 Realising Our Broadband Future summit was so popular that demand far outstripped available room. To enable greater involvement across the country in this important debate, we coordinated a number of remote-but-networked venues to allow anyone to join in a free community forum and contribute to the Summit.

Participants including media and creative professionals, state and local government, academia and social commentators came to local forums in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide and contributed significant real-world ideas, challenges and priorities to the central event.
