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
