Introducing ‘Participation Now’ 1.0 – a new Open University web resource for those interested / involved in participatory experiments and public action initiatives

This exciting new project from Nick Mahony and Hilde Stephansen at The Open University goes some way to addressing some of the issues I have highlighted recently regarding public engagement. Creating interactive platforms such as this allows interactions with much wider publics, even though it is still limited to those that have Internet access and are predisposed to access the site. I will be interested to see what the uptake for the project is and some of the feedback it gets.
