Are you a Democracy Seeker? Our online task for October 2019 is all about councillors, with a focus on how we can make it easier for citizens to find out what our councillors do.
Our “Growing a stronger youth council” report shares what young people told us about having a voice, getting involved in community life, and how we can help them to grow the skills, confidence and connections that they want, in the way that they want.
Our Working Group discussed our democracy work programme, how to connect councillors and citizens in a networked society, how we’re putting councillors at the heart of everything we do, and the upcoming “Growing a stronger youth council” report.
