Sustainability Tweet Conversations
Social media has come a long way, and is now regarded as a mature tool for learning and sharing. One area of this maturing is through tweetchats and conversations. Working with inspirational colleague Andrea Learned (@AndreaLearned , Seattle based writer and social strategist with insightful focus on women and sustainable business) we now facilitate a growing series of leading social media conversations.
These conversations, sometimes commissioned by others, enable wider promotion and perhaps deeper discussion of built environment themes than regular event round tables or brain storming sessions could ever do. Whilst there is no substitute for face to face, a digital approach can add to and compliment more traditional events.
We should view these twitter / google hangout conversations as a modern white paper – promoting leading edge thinking from within organisations, small or large, as a platform for debate, and as a digital benchmarking that enables learning and sharing for improvement.
(By the way, please do get in contact to discuss how this format can help promote your sustainability and built environment events, experiences, case studies and thinking. We can really amplify your message!)
