It's now time to bring deliberative democracy into our communities!

By organising local Community Assemblies, we can…

Grow our local networks by continuing to build local alliances and do outreach;

Keep up the pressure on local politicians, local and unitary authorities;

Spread the word about deliberative democracy and empower people in the process;

Start a local campaign or project in collaboration with other groups sharing a common concern.
