30 days of human comms #13 Sandwell Council as Car Share for #ourday

I’ve a soft spot for #ourday the local government day of posting day-to-day tasks to show a bigger picture.

It started as #walsall24 when Kate Goodall suggested that a day of everyday tasks would be a good idea. It was shameless rip-off of #gmp24 a police 24-hour tweet of day-to-day activity. And #our day is a shameless rip-off of #walsall24. This is a good thing.

I’m a bit on the fence about just using Twitter to reach people as there are more more popular platforms available. But I did like this Sandwell Council not-in-an-office video of staff en route to carry out their job.

It’s like Car Share for the public sector. There’s even a bloke waving in the back seat.

The aim of #ourday is less call-to-action but more showing the human side of the organisation.
