Being a researcher you can sometimes be accused of talking rubbish… At this point I usually take a deep breath and translate the marketing speak I’ve been coming out with into something that sounds a bit more like plain and simple English.
However, for the past couple of months the Enventure team has indeed been talking rubbish with over 3,000 Merseyside inhabitants…but purely for the greater research good of course, as part of our extensive public consultation on the future of household waste disposal on behalf of the Merseyside Waste Disposal Authority.
Our case study shows how we successfully integrated various methodologies and communication channels including Facebook and Twitter to inform the development of the Partnership’s revised Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy for managing and dealing with household rubbish over the coming 30 years.
And now we are planning the next phase of research for the Partnership. Consultation on the revised future Strategy will take place over the summer and Enventure is tasked with gathering and analysing feedback on the key aspects of the Strategy from residents and key stakeholders using a variety of communication channels. Keep an eye out on the Don’t Waste Your Say website for more details.
