There is promise that mobile technology is a difference-maker in getting people to participate in public projects because it meets them where they are - whether in the coffee shop, at the park, or passing by a construction site. Mobile engagement allows you to reach people in that moment when they are actually thinking about your planning project and how it will affect them.
But planners and leaders often struggle with how to implement mobile strategies in meaningful ways that draw the most participation. It’s not enough to just announce on your website that you have a mobile app - creative strategies are needed to reach people on-the-go, sparking curiosity and enticing people to pull out their smartphones and get involved.
That’s why UIS is excited to host a webinar for two dynamic organizations - the International Association of Public Participation and Engaging Cities - a webinar that will equip you to create experiences that make participation fun and easy for your audience. You’ll learn how users can become engaged through a mixture of discovery, games, signage, and print materials as the connections to mobile apps and technology.Registration is open now, so sign up here and join us on August 14th for an hour of valuable tips from the mobile engagement experts! Your public will thank you for it.
