This year, Engage is creating a city-wide discussion about how ordinary people, citizens, feel about the way their city is run exploring together what we think about the state of our local democracy and whether people feel engaged or not with the decision-making process.
We are excited to be joined in our second seminar by the inimitable Jon Alexander, co-founder of the New Citizenship Project, and author of CITIZENS, a blueprint for what could happen when we we start to think and act like Citizens, not Consumers.
Following on from Dr Camila Vergara’s talk two weeks prior, Jon will share examples of how other cities and regions in the UK are doing democracy differently, in a way that benefits local citizens. His talk will be followed by responses from a local panel, and an audience Q&A.
This is an in-person event, in the Concert Room at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. Access via the side (car park) entrance – follow signs for the Giles Gilbert Scott Suite. Paid, on-site parking available. Refreshments from 5:30pm, event starts 6pm.
