    BCS to launch Savvy Citizen initiative

    Only 20 per cent of the UK's population are information 'savvy citizens', according to new research commissioned by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, for a new public awareness campaign called 'Savvy Citizens'.

    The Institute believes that being able to access, understand and use information is vital to modern societies and has positive benefits for people economically, socially, culturally and politically, an assertion widely acknowledged by the public: 62 per cent of UK adults agree information technology has changed their lives for the better and 83% want more information about public services to be freely available.

      This doesn't seem to have taken off at the moment. Their Twitter feed has 267 people following only at the moment and the Facebook group has 19 friends. It's a pity because it's an important topic. Hopefully they don't brush it under the carpet at some point.

      I wonder whether getting more into the mainstream such as linking with Citizens Advice and things like that would be possible?
