Seven Modes of Everyday Participation

A Notwestminster 2020 workshop hosted by Jon Alexander

Notwestminster 2019

Back in 2018, New Citizenship Project launched the Everyday Participation Toolkit, based around seven different creative and joyful ways people could participate more… in the work of cooperatives. Drawing on examples from all over the world, it’s been used by coops of all shapes and size in the UK and beyond.

Now, as we start to do more work in local government, we reckon something very similar could be useful here. We’re enjoying working with creative people in local government and are excited to see how a new version of this toolkit could help local democracy.

We need the help of the Notwestminster community to hack it with us and help us make it real.

Big hearts and open minds

Notwestminster 2020 main event

Our kind of democracy is human-scale. When we talk about local democracy, we mean the democracy that happens where we are, in our neighbourhoods and the places that we know. It is the democracy that we live and breathe, each and every day. It only lives when we have our hearts in it, and it only grows when we are open to thinking and doing in different ways.

So if you’re open to our local democracy being what we want it to be, and if you’re up for the challenge of doing something to help make it happen, please join us at Notwestminster.
