Senator Kate Lundy wins award for International Top 10 People Changing the World of Internet and Politics in France

Thanks to Georgie Somerset for sharing the news that Labor Senator for the ACT, Kate Lundy has been named the winner of the International Top 10 People Changing the World of Internet and Politics at the 11th World eDemocracy Forum held last week in Issy-les-Moulineaux, (Paris, France).

Senator Lundy was presented with the International eDemocracy Award by French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner in recognition of her active and forward-thinking work toward building Open Government culture and practice in Australia. Senator Lundy has been strongly engaged in the Australian Gov 2.0 agenda and has put the principles to work in her own office through her online communications and Public Sphere consultations.
 
The World eDemocracy Forum is a key global event for eGovernment and Gov 2.0. Senator Lundy’s contribution was short listed from nominations around the world through an online voting process last month, and then was named the winner at the Forum as judged by a panel of experts .
 
Congratulations to Kate – Women seem to be taking the lead in e communication

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.
