Public engagement is any process that brings people together to address issues of importance, solve problems and bring about positive social change. For public engagement to be effective, it needs to invite everyday folks to engage in discourse, dialogue, debate and (most important) action on issues they really care about. It is vital for a PR campaign, program or rollout to be successful. But every campaign also needs to include personal engagement, since the shift from "I know about this" to "I believe in this" to "I am a part of this" is the shift that makes all the difference in the world.
More About Giving Tuesday:
Our national day of thanksgiving is immediately followed by two days of stuffgetting: the rampant frenzy of consumer hand-to-hand combat known as Black Friday, which has spilled over to Cyber Monday. The splurge and binge of those days created the perfect conditions for a change of pace. We needed a dedicated day of giving, this time not just our heartfelt thanks but also something more tangible. #GivingTuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, arrived at the moment many of us were feeling overly stuffed, fatigued and searching for something more than turkeyed-out shoppers teed up for the latest conspicuously consumptive items.
Without the use of print ads or commercials, this grassroots effort has transformed into a global movement, sustained almost entirely through earned and social media-one press release, article, blog post, hashtag, "like," tweet and #UNselﬁe at a time-completely saturating the media landscape during the giving season each year.
