Social Media as a Civic Engagement Tool

February 18, 2014

*E.J Pratt Library Room: 306 (computer lab)*
*Free Event – Donations are Welcome*

Juggling work, family and other commitments can make it difficult to stay on top of your city’s politics, but the internet and social media have made it easier than ever to be civically engaged. Can’t make it to a Council meeting? Follow the live-stream from the comfort of your home or office. No idea when the issues that matter to you will come up on Council floor? Familiarize yourself with the Toronto City Council Meeting Monitor. Want to meet people who share your views on city issues? Chances are you can find them on Twitter.

Attend this workshop to learn the basics on how to use social media and web resources to stay engaged with your city and connect with others who share your interests.
