Power, Participation and Wisdom in Local Democracy

A Notwestminster 2018 workshop from Andy Paice

Notwestminster workshops

This interactive workshop will introduce a novel framework designed to support democracy campaigners, local councillors and activists in their work in upgrading local democracy.

An explanation of the “3 dimensions of a Wise Democracy model” – power, participation and (quite notably) wisdom – will show you ways to make participative democratic processes even better.

Using the model, we’ll explore a whole toolset of design elements for upgrading local democracy.

We’ll then use these design elements either to investigate ways of improving projects that you are working on, or to co-create a mini-manifesto of principles for enhancing local democracy.

I’m a London based facilitator and convener of participatory spaces. I used to be a Buddhist monk and I have a fascination for the relationship between psychology and politics. Since 2016 I’ve been collaborating with thought leader Tom Atlee of the US based Co-Intelligence Institute and the Wise Democracy Project which I’m representing at Notwestminster 2018. I’m the founder of the Reinventing Democracy YouTube Channel which interviews people from all over the world in the field of democratic innovation. I’m also involved in the UK based Campaign for A Citizen-led Constitutional Convention. 

We are Generation D

Notwestminster 2018Strengthening our local democracy is something that we can only do together. Democracy needs to work better for everyone, all the time, win or lose. We think that the stronger local democracy we all want and deserve could be just around the corner. And we don’t need a tardis to get there. We just need each other.

The future of local democracy starts with us. So let’s talk about our democratic generation. Let’s talk about our regeneration.

But let’s not stop at the talking.
