Want to help redesign local democracy? We bring people together to create and share new ideas for doing local democracy. Join our network:
If we want a stronger local democracy, we all need to get involved in making it happen – wherever we are. Notwestminster is about finding the people, ideas and energy we need, so that we can do something practical to improve local democracy where we are. Join us in Huddersfield on Friday 10th & Saturday 11th February 2017 to get involved. We’re open for workshop ideas now and we are looking for sponsorship. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a sponsorship pack.
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.
Our second “We’re not in Westminster any more” event was on 12th and 13th February 2016 at The Media Centre in Huddersfield. It included a Local Democracy Maker 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.
