We live in a global world, but one which still revolves around things that are local. Ourlocality is an East Lothian web platform with an array of publishing, e-democracy and mapping tools that are easy to use and to learn.
Ourlocality is everyone, individuals, community groups, small businesses, community councils and much much more. In fact anyone with a legitimate connection with East Lothian can stake a claim and start publishing now.
Like WordPress.com, we offer virtual real estate here in East Lothian. We will foster an environment that will encourage debate and communication, let local democracy flourish and provide a platform for any cause.
