Weeknotes: Capturing Learning in Calderdale, w/c 29th July 2019


  • Creating resources for capturing learning and reflections in Calderdale.
  • Planning communications and web presence for Calderdale Conversations.
  • Scoping conversations in Glasgow.

Last week…

  • We pulled the prototypes and engagement plan developed through our co-design workshops in Calderdale into a form for the council to start building upon and putting into use. We also created a content capture form for staff and volunteers to record what’s heard in Calderdale Conversations across the borough. And created a learning and reflections form for those using prototypes to capture learning about how well these prototypes work and how they can be improved on.

This week we will…

  • Run scoping meetings in Glasgow to plan out how we’ll be working with the council there.
  • Have a comms planning session with staff from Calderdale Council, thinking about how we communicate about the conversations the council is running and how to make best use of a web presence as part of this.
  • Think about the best way to capture case studies about our work with council partners.

What we’re thinking…

  • We are interested in how elected members feel about involving people more closely in decision-making. We are planning to carry out some research into this. You can read more here.
