On July 30, starting at 12:00 GMT-0 (London time), we are scheduling a 24-hour day of play to capture data for the Agile 2015 conference. We will host a series of 30 minute online forums starting every half hour. You’ll get a chance to experience the same collaborative techniques we have used with communities and nonprofits around the globe as we work to bring people together to tackle wicked social problems.
We’d love for you to participate in this community building forum! Click through to sign up and be notified to participate. (And read on for more details!)
In this case, we are using a Decision Engine game to illustrate how citizens who care about the education of their children can collaboratively prioritize a school budget. This forum was inspired by a similar forum we produced a large California school district. Note that EVERYONE can participate – because the priorities for educating our children need to include the voices of parents, educators, business leaders and even the crusty old curmudgeon who chases the kids off his lawn (but secretly wants them to get a job and move out of the neighborhood).
This project will consist of a series of forums that will be active for a 24-hour period, starting 30-July-2015 at 12:00AM GMT-0. A new forum will start every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour and will last 30 minutes.
