The BHIG group have been asked to lead a discussion at Brighton Rocks/ Power Sucks:
'Inspired by the new democratic movements at home and abroad, from 'flat-pack democracy' in Frome to Podemos in Spain, this is a day of creative engagement aiming to develop a vision on how democracy can be extended, enriched and made fit for purpose in 21st century Brighton & Hove. Featuring a range of national and local speakers and community groups from the world of politics and beyond, this is your chance to participate in and influence the debate on the nature and role of local government.'
We are really looking forward to this event, please join us. You can buy your tickets here
