Harringey Online

April 6th, 2012

Hugh Flouch is the founder of Networked Neighbourhoods, an organisation working with clients to foster digital society at the local level. Within the scope of this project he established the double-award-winning Harringay Online, one of the UK's most successful citizen-led neighbourhood networks. Networked Neighbourhoods is a collaborative venture between experts in social media, neighbourhood networks and community development.

Their vision is to foster digital society at the local level to increase neighbourhood social capital, grow democratic engagement and build the capacity of communities to work as more active agents in partnership with local councils.

Here Hugh tells us about Harringey Online and how the virtual world meets the real one so that action often results.
