The Prime Minister will join a Google+ Hangout on July 21, involving Australians drawn from across the country and many walks of life. The concept is Question Time for laypeople — in cyberspace.
The event is being co-hosted by Fairfax Media, publisher of The Sun-Herald and The Sunday Age, Deakin University and OurSay.
In a video encouraging people to get involved, Ms Gillard invites Australians to submit a question and speak directly with her about the future of the country.
What is a Google+ Hangout?
It’s a way to chat online using video, involving up to 10 people at a time. You can do it from your computer, tablet or smart phone, with a host inviting a number of people to join the chat. You can watch a live stream of the Hangout on your screen.
How can you get involved?
Go to OurSay.orgto submit a question. Then use your email, Facebook, Twitter and Google+ networks to ask friends and followers to vote for your question.
Everyone gets seven votes. You can cast them by clicking on the vote button next to each question on the site.
The people who ask the three questions that have the most votes at 5pm on July 19 will get to virtually hangout with the Prime Minister on July 21 at 11am.
