The digital jury needs you…

Wanted - young people to participate in an online research project. Tell the Hansard Society what you think of the internet, and how it does and doesn't work for you.

The Hansard Society is setting up a new research project to discover what the internet offers to young people.

Funded by the Broadcasting Standards Commission, the project will kick off in November 2001 and will look at the reality of the internet from the perspective of young people. If you are 16 to 24 and have ever had difficulties finding what you need on the internet, or if you have some bright ideas about how the net could provide more for young people, this is the place to speak out.

So rise to the challenge of a weekly internet-based task! The project involves 10 tasks, all with a ‘civic’ flavour – so one week you might be asked to find and use websites to find out about local or national issues. Another week you might be asked to email your MP.

You can also exchange ideas and chat with other jury members about the week’s task in an online discussion forum, and give us feedback via the evaluation questionnaire.

And you can earn some cash and win prizes while you participate….

So if you’re aged 16 to 24 and would like to take part in the Digital Jury, email me, Nicola Hall, at or register online at

The project starts in November 2001 – so it’s not too late to participate.
