#HolyroodTweetUp- April 2017
Thu 6 April 2017, 20:00 – 23:00 BST
An informal evening of chatting with likeminded souls in the pub! #HolyroodTweetup is a regular gathering of people who like talking about the state of Scottish democracy and politics.
This month's Tweetup is being organised around a talk at the Edinburgh International Science Festival: The rise of e-democracy. The talk will focus on 'what the role of modern technologies and communication methods will be in the future of politics, public participation and democracy' and will attemt to address whether e-democracy makes governments more focused on the citizens they serve and if technology will drive increased participation in the political process. Speakers are digital democracy expert Emma Mulqueeny, Digital Engagement Manager at the Scottish Government Chris Connolly and Democratic Society's own Leah Lockhart.
If you don't want to go along to the talk, that's fine! A table is booked for the tweetup in The Royal Dick bar from 8pm and those of us attending the talk will join everyone in the bar around 9:30pm. We are looking forward to some healthy chat and debate!
Feel free to invite others and use #HolyroodTweetUp to spread the word on social media. See you there!
