Online Public Engagement » Thornley Fallis

By: Thornley Fallis  09-12-2011

The Internet has changed how we live, work, learn and network. As more people move online and decision–makers use the Internet to support their public consultation and outreach efforts, Thornley Fallis has developed an online public engagement practice.  

Today, your audience is empowered by new media options that have changed how they participate in public and civic life.

  • They use Facebook to share a public meeting notice with their friends.
  • They post comments on the consultation website and then spread them through ‘tweets’ on Twitter.
  • They use social media and the Internet to create their own groups and websites about your consultation issues.  
  • Media following local issues on Twitter, post their stories about the consultation on their blogs and websites, spreading the story to thousands of people.
  • People participating in in-person town halls use the Internet to sustain their participation.

Taken together, these online touch points have become critical pieces of today’s public engagement ecosystem.

If you are tasked with operating a public consultation or thinking about how your organization can leverage the power of the public engagement ecosystem, we can help. We provide a range of services designed for today’s public engagement practitioners. Our solutions include:

  • half-day workshops on the theory and practice of online public engagement;
  • customized strategic plans in support of online consultations; and
  • turn-key online consultation services.
