Here's a quick way to understand Stickyworld in a single picture.




Recently we were invited by the Future Cities Catapult to present at one of their lunch and learn sessions and share some stories about citizen engagement projects by customers using our platform. Little did we know that their thank you note would be in the form of this superb illustration, crafted by visual artist Juan Felipe Caro who works at the Catapult. We were thrilled as it synthesizes a lot of information about our technology, the process and value it offers in a really clever and creative rich picture. As the saying goes "A picture tells a thousand words".

Planning on the Roof success - try it for yourself !


As you may know the Stickyworld team and Planning in the Pub got together last Sunday to create a Planning on the Roof Party as part of our ongoing Neighbourhood Stickers research funded by Nominet Trust. We are developing the idea of "Twitter Walkabouts" as a new method for engagement professionals to engage more young people in planning discussions. We've spotted this is also a great way to make the use of Stickyworld even more sociable, exciting and interactive and invites participants to engage in creating content together with organisers. This blog gives a run down of the day, and if you are thinking about running your own Twitter Walkabout,get in touch - it's completely free to try out.

Learning, exploring and engaging!



Hi there, my name is Lauren and I am the new digital marketing and social media assistant at Stickyworld. I am now just in my second week and they've made me write this blog post! Stickyworld is still a small company (I'm the fifth employee and there are a few part timers), so I guess that's why they have thrown me straight in to the deep end to get on with it! But it's been a great experience for me; I've learnt a lot in such a short period of time and really enjoyed myself.
