Get Engaged: Alberta Social Policy Framework Part II
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Over the past six months the Alberta government has been asking Albertans to participate in a province wide engagement to direct the future of our social policy. Using various tools, like community discussions, surveys and social media, the Alberta government has sought feedback on what is important to Albertans. The hope is that this feedback can be used to create a social policy framework to guide decision making and social programs into the future.
Part 1 of this process took place during the spring and summer. During this part of the process over 20 000 Albertans participated in community discussions and answered the online survey. Part 1 largely focused on establishing what is important to people in Alberta, or what they value.
The next step is to develop strategies to bring these ideas and values to fruition. The government recently launched Part 2 of the social policy framework engagement and it involves new community discussions and surveys to be completed. We highly recommend anyone interested in the future of our province and it's social policies to get involved once again.
There are lots of ways to get involved. You can:
- Read relevant documents.
- Participate in discussions in your community.
- Contribute by editing the wiki or writing a blog.
- Complete the survey.
- Send your thoughts directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
