What is the problem?
Kent County Council is required to publicise and promote information on positive leisure time activities and related facilities in the county and to keep it up to date. KCC does this currently using a database driven directory website (www.togogo.info).
But what else could we be doing with digital technologies to give young people quicker and more convenient access to information and things to do and places they can go? The overall goal is to encourage more young people to participate in “positive activities”.
What would they find cool, naff, useful, easy, valuable…? What’s important to them?
How can digital technologies be used to promote positive things to do to teenagers in Kent?
Who is this for?
How would the idea work?
It would be a website driven by quarterly live music festivals promoting positive activities to teenagers.
Using Bluetooth ‘chip’ wristband and a ‘DigiMe’ account would enable people to update their events and receive further promotions, as well as volunteer in exchange for free gig tickets.
What is needed to make this idea successful?
