If we want a stronger local democracy, we all need to be part of the generation that makes it happen. Notwestminster is about finding the people, ideas and energy we need, so that we can improve our local democracy, here and now.
Our third annual Notwestminster event was on 10th and 11th February 2017 at The Media Centre in Huddersfield.
Notwestminster 2017 included a Democracy Experiments Day, workshops, Lightning talks, a PechaKucha Night, creative activities, curry, drinks and lots of opportunities for making contact with others who are interested in local democracy.
Want to do a Design Experiment for Local Democracy?
Design Experiments for Local Democracy is a practical programme for local democracy advocates. We are encouraging people to rapidly test and evaluate new ways of doing local democracy, and we’re supporting each other in doing this.
The programme is co-ordinated by the Notwestminster network and the Centre for Public Scrutiny. We’re looking for people who want to get involved in trying a democracy experiment in their area. You can Sign up now.
