When: Thu 10th Nov - 6–7.30pm

Where: Quaker Meeting House, School Lane, Liverpool

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.

Following on from the first two seminars in this year’s series – with Dr Camila Vergara (13th October) and Jon Alexander (27th October) – we’re taking the topic of citizenship and throwing the floor open to you, the citizens of Liverpool. This will be a warm, thoughtful, and energising workshop, taking as our starting point the question posed by Jon Alexander:

How might we bring together all the disparate citizen energy in Liverpool in a way that truly reinvents democracy in the city?

In this hands-on, facilitated workshop, we’ll discover and map out Liverpool’s existing citizen groups and organisations. Which community groups do you know, that already exhibit “citizen energy”? And how could we, as residents, connect them together, for a more representative, democratic city?

Doors open at 5:30pm, for drinks and light refreshments, before the workshop starts at 6pm, with a 7:30pm finish.
