Political action in the digital age

On 13 February, The Fourth Group co-organised an introductory workshop on political action in the digital age with the award-winning charity Shout Out UK.

We were joined by youth workers, computer scientists, entrepreneurs, public affairs professionals, students, trade unionists, technologists, and political actors who worked together to developed campaign ideas. Chris Riklin, NationBuilder’s EMEA Director, spoke on the changing landscape of political leadership and communications, and Matteo Bergamini, Shout Out UK’s founder, ran practical exercises on political literacy.

Finally, The Fourth Group’s CEO ran through how technology is impacting society and how citizens worldwide are responding through new ideas and campaigns.
