This Monday, 21st November 2016, we will be launching with partners the “Our Democracy – Act As If We Own The Place” campaign in Glasgow. The campaign is a coalition of organisations, campaigners and politicians who are dedicated to improving our local democracy and was piloted at the Rural Parliament earlier this year.
To celebrate the launch, there will be a public discussion on renewing local democracy, with guest speakers:
Lesley Riddoch author of Blossom: What Scotland needs to flourish
Robin McAlpine, director of think-tank Common Weal
Gehan MacLeod, co-founder of GalGael Trust and former resident of Pollock Free State
Willie Sullivan, director of the Electoral Reform Society Scotland
