The next Digital Leaders Scotland salon is titled “Digital's role in political participation".
The role that digital played in the recent general election has caused many commentators to question if the relationship between digital and the democratic process needs to be redefined. Social media may be key for political participation, as its potential to start debate and maintain a conversation between voters and political figures may ultimately shape public perceptions of political parties.
This salon will explore the following:
- How did digital play its part in the recent general election?
- Are there lessons we can learn about digital’s role in communication, inclusion and participation?
- Is social media a solution for voter disillusionment and lack of engagement with politics?
