TitleGetting heard : a handbook for Hong Kong citizens
Authors
Issue Date2002
PublisherHong Kong : Hong Kong University Press
AbstractThis Handbook suggests ways that individual citizens can work with each other and with the government in making choices and taking action. It is based on the belief that effective public dialogue benefits both citizens and government. Getting Heard provides concrete information about the specific steps needed to transform an idea or a vision into a reality and explains how you can use this information to influence government bodies and also companies. The Handbook addresses issues such as how to write a press release, organise a campaign and raise money. It includes contact information for individual government departments, government officials and the media. It also includes a sample funding proposal, a template for press releases and other useful information. Civic Exchange believes it is possible to make decisions about public issues in an open and creative manner. The secret to successful participatory decision-making lies in establishing better communication between well-informed people. This is the objective of Getting Heard. The Handbook is aimed at anyone seeking to participate in the dialogue on public affairs in Hong Kong or shape decision- making on a particular issue
