eGovernment in Sheffield
From Sheffield in the UK comes this interesting attempt to get young people more involved in municipal issues: Smart | Connect. The format is intriguing, combining information and surveys to try to teach and gather opinions at the same time. Modules covering smoking issues, recreation facilities, and perceptions of local government are the main focus of this exercise in "e-consultation". They've also added a portfolio-like component called "Your Space", but I'm not sure why anyone would use it.
