Abstract

Current UK trend of empowering local communities and promotion of the 'Big Society' concept are stimulating new research into practical ways of developing community participation. There is a need for a better understanding of the tipping points for this engagement and how lCT can make use of these. The aim of this research is to develop a frame of reference for effective community participation through lCT, applying both complexity and design perspectives to recognize the role of local interactions. Research will start by constructing a narrative of experiences to help develop semi-structured interviews. The successful outcome will be an effective and efficient, time saving framework.
