The 2nd seminar in Engage’s 2022 series on Making Liverpool Better, Together looks at the NATIONAL reality and is led by the extraordinary Jon Alexander, founder of the New Citizenship Project and author of the best-selling book Citizens. We will discover what people are doing around the country as engaged citizens to make their spaces better and to create places in which they have had a say.
Jon is one of the most experienced people in the UK with respect to citizen democracy and has done more than anyone to shift perceptions from people seeing themselves primarily as consumers to a greater self-understanding that we are all citizens and with that comes responsibilities. Jon has spoken in Liverpool on previous occasions and has always inspired and left an indelible impression:
