The recently launched “Kick the Can” website, a project of the California Center for Public Health Advocacy aiming to “give the boot” to sugary drinks, is cleanly designed, intuitive to use, and provides important and actionable information organized into the following sections: facts, advocacy tools, information on what’s happening where, multimedia galleries of videos and images (and a place to share your own), specific ways to take action, and a blog.
In addition to in and of itself being a wonderful resource addressing a topic that is important to the #occupyhealthcare cause, I think the site serves as a great example of what could be a next step for our work here at occupy healthcare. As we aim to move from discussion to action, taking the organization system of this website (facts, advocacy tools, a map of what’s happening where, a multimedia center, information on taking action, and a blog) and applying it to specific subtopics we prioritize to create a new and revised website could be a concrete step in the direction we wish to move.
Please share your thoughts! Does this direction make sense?
In my next post, I will try to compile some of the specific subtopics that have been brought up in previous occupy healthcare posts and tweets as a possible place to start.
