If we want a stronger local democracy, we all need to be part of the generation that makes it happen. Notwestminster is about finding the people, ideas and energy we need, so that we can improve our local democracy, here and now.
The Notwestminster network brings people together to create and share new ideas for doing local democracy. It’s for everyone who has something positive to say about local democracy and for anyone who is up for a challenge. We aim to turn our discussions around local democracy and digital into some practical tools and techniques that we can all use to make democracy work better for us. Our volunteers organise an annual Notwestminster event each February in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, which is the UK’s default unconference style event for all things local democracy.
