We’re delighted to announce that our friends at Gov 2.0 Radio will be joining us to report live from CITIZEN 2012. John Wells and Allison Hornery will be our anchors for the live stream broadcast during the coffee breaks and will run a special ‘event within an event’ for the remote audience during the lunch break.
These sessions will connect a panel of speakers and delegates in London with the international audience that will be joining the conference via the live stream throughout the day. This will be similar to other reporting and links hosted by John and Allison from such conferences as the World e-Government Forum (WeGF) in Paris, the annual UN World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Geneva, and the World e-Government Organization (WeGO) launch in Seoul, Korea. “We’re really looking forward to this UK conference, particularly with its focus on the citizen perspective which is too often overlooked”, John Wells said last week.

About Gov 2.0 Radio
Founded in San Francisco in early 2009, Gov 2.0 Radio has grown to be one of the world’s preeminent Internet sources on all things “connected government” – e-gov, gov 2.0 and open gov – featuring interviews from thought leaders and practitioners across the US and Canada, and now the UK, Australia and the Middle East, with other countries following soon.
The Gov 2.0 Radio international audience includes central, regional and local government as well as tech influentials, civic innovators and public sector change-makers. As G2R expands into Europe and Asia, the Cofluence team are now looking beyond netcasting to more participatory opportunities including a development program for local reporters.
Producer/host Allison Hornery told Citizen2012: “Our mission is to help anyone doing cutting-edge work in government and public innovation to find their voice. Everyone has a story to tell or a story they see in the work around them. We see ‘social co-reporting’ as an increasingly significant way that public innovators will share important learnings and connect collaborative solutions.”
