teambits digitizes Consultation Event to locate sites for nuclear dump

On April 29 and 30, 2016, the “Commission on Storage of High-Level Radioactive Waste” invited guests to a consultation event in Berlin. At the nationwide event, more than 150 representatives from society, business and science as well as citizens discussed the draft of the repository report and its key messages. To increase the consensus-based nature of the report, attendees were able to read and comment on all key messages in the draft report, as well as ask questions to the commission members on content and background during the consultation meeting. Through the use of teambits:interactive It was possible for the participants to send their comments, which were discussed in small groups of tables, to a central editorial office, thus creating a common assessment of the key messages from the draft report. This could involve the Commission in its final deliberations on the draft.
