Notwestminster 2020: Big hearts and open minds

Do you want a kinder, more open local democracy?

Join us on 14th & 15th February 2020 at The Media Centre in Huddersfield

Notwestminster is a free event for everyone who has something positive to say about local democracy and anyone who is up for the challenge of making it better.

Do you want to be part of a kinder, more constructive and more open local democracy? If we want a more compassionate kind of democracy that matters for our everyday lives (and in which our everyday lives matter) then we can each be part of making that happen. Notwestminster is where we can listen to each other, share ideas and work together to improve our democracy. 

So if a kinder local democracy is your kind of democracy, please join us at Notwestminster.


Main event - Saturday 15th  February 2020

Our main event includes participant-led workshops, lightning talks, creative activities and lots of opportunities for making contact with others who are interested in all aspects of our local democracy.


Fringe events – Friday 14th February 2020

Our Democracy Solutions Day is a chance to share any issues you are thinking about, hear about helpful practice from other Notwestminster participants, and unlock some new ideas and possibilities. We also have a special PechaKucha Night, featuring a series of fun, quick-fire presentations from members of the Notwestminster network and our friends.


Who is it for? Everyone…
