Virtual and hybrid council meetings

Virtual and hybrid council meetings

July 10, 2020

This briefing discusses the findings from our research on the experiences of councillors and democratic services officers in introducing and running virtual and hybrid council meetings during the Covid-19 pandemic. It addresses a number of the building blocks in our Planting the Flag prospectus, including Democratic engagement and renewal, Distributed, place-based leadership and delivery, Workstyles and Living spaces.

The research should be read alongside our guide to the use of conferencing and broadcasting platforms.
