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.
Could you organise an event or activity anywhere in Kirklees during October 2019 that helps people to get involved in our local democracy?
Our Working Group discussed Place Based Working in Kirklees.
We’re proud to be part of a democratic organisation, with councillors at the heart. That’s why we’re encouraging teams from across the council to learn more about what it means to work in a political environment.
We’d like to share a great example of a council service who are determined to be open and to invite our councillors in. It’s part of our work to put councillors at the heart of what we do.
