Week 3: Tuesday 8th August 2017
The main focus of today’s session was to develop a survey to gather the opinions of local residents in relation to our campaign: Politics and Courses.
We started off the morning by going through the details for Saturday’s event. We discussed what the plan of action would be in the event that the weather does not go as planned so that we are prepared.
The team then moved on to discussing the survey that would be circulated at the event in order to gather information. They were split in to two groups so that a variety of questions could be created. The groups began by initially just discussing ideas and the information they would like to receive though the survey.
The campaign that is being created is focused on Politics and also Courses that will develop life skills. The aim of the surveys is to find out whether the community would be interested in this sort of project and if so what they would like to see.
The questions will find out what the most popular social media platforms are amongst the community in order to circulate information. The questions will also aim to uncover what the community opinion is on politics and whether or not people are actually interested and want to get involved in politics.
The survey will target a mixture of age groups in order to better understand the interests of a variety of the community to ensure that events organised appeal to them. The team is also particularly interested in the opinions of young people as they are the target demographic for the campaign.
The team then set off in to the community (Redwood Estate) to hand out leaflets and speak to members of the public about Saturday's Big Local Community event.
It was a productive session and the team is ready to move forward on to the next step of the campaign.
