How can you make your local council and committee meetings more accessible? The Municipal Council of Meppel (Gemeente Meppel) was looking for a solution to enable all council and committee meetings to be broadcast live as a webcast and made available on-demand afterwards.
Gemeente Meppel wants to communicate more open and transparent with its citizens. The goal is to include every citizen in decision-making and other communications. With the current methods Gemeente Meppel uses, many people are not included, according to the municipality.
The solution Gemeente Meppel was looking for is the webcast platform from Company Webcast. The platform can be integrated easily within the iBabs Paperless Meetings environment and existing microphone systems.
With the webcast platform from Company Webcast, local council and committee meetings are broadcasted live from the municipality’s website. The livestream is made available for on-demand watching right when it has ended.
Gemeente Meppel is very happy with the solution. “We never thought it could be so easy. Now we can connect with our citizens, and we as a municipal council are more accessible than ever before.”
