Would you use social media to have your say in government policy?
#ConsoLab is an idea which the youth steering group has developed to help young people have a say in policy through a digital platform, using mostly social meida. For more information please see this thread here :)
What is #ConsoLab
- #ConsoLab is a
network of young people that volunteer to review policy consultation documents
to make them easier to understand by rewording questions for younger people.
- Once they publish the youth friendly version of the policy online, they would use social media platforms to get feedback from young people.
- You could then give your thoughts on a policy instantly using online polls and questions through Instagram stories (and other similar platforms) and see what others think (which side of the argument they are on).
- Here are some example screenshots of consultation questions
What do you think of this idea as a way to feed into government policies?
Which social media platforms would you use for this?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts
who wade into discomfort and vulnerability and tell the truth about their
stories are the real badasses.”
