I’ve spoken with nearly all event participants (just one or two more people to call); we received excellent feedback on the Crowd Wise process, a deliberative method which enables people to think through the different options of a question, in this case our event question, to create consensus in this case on the question we had developed with our engineering experts.
Broadly speaking, we scored incredibly well on all counts, the exception being the time we gave each expert to present their pitch. We’re now exploring ways to resolve this for future contributors and participants alike.
At our event last week, everyone said they’d like to follow-up issues raised. As our purpose is to create space for participants to develop the outcomes findings and take things forward as they wish whether individually or as a group we have arranged a provisional date for this meeting on either Monday 23rd or Tuesday 24th January 2012. We’ll let circulate details as soon as this information is available.
Sheffield City Council also offer transport and planning initiatives Sheffield on the Move and the Motorists Forum which meet quarterly at the Town Hall.
Members of the public are asked to notify Greg Challis by email, greg[dot]challis @ sheffield [dot] gov dot [uk] two weeks in advance of each meeting to confirm their attendance.
