To effectively serve their communities, it is important for councils to exhibit resilience. Many councils have implemented creative solutions to address recurring natural disasters, while libraries have made a dedicated effort to engage with the community. Technological advancements also offer support to local councils.
However, it is crucial to ensure that everyone is included in these efforts, as there is a growing risk of a significant digital divide that must be closely monitored.
In four perspective pieces, we discuss strategies such as leveraging social media platforms for public outreach, utilising digital tools to enhance citizen participation in decision-making processes, and employing data analytics to gain insights into public sentiment:
