The main goal has been to create a dialog-portal that both delivers information and also offers the possibility to participate. The participation is possible on different levels: the user can choose to participate with their own vision or ideas or the user can choose to solely read the comments and give “votes”.
Vejlesfremtid.dk has primarily been established for the” industrial policy-debate”
It has been a positive experience to combine both the possibility to participate but also to get information at the same site. There have been more users, who have visited the site for information purposes than to participate. There have been about 30 readers a day – but unfortunately not very many who have participated with ideas or visions.
Marketing is important. Otherwise people will not use it / don’t know that it exists. It is important to inform about the portal both through the local media but also to “talk” about it at other public events.
