Power Tools for Reclaiming Local Politics

BBC Radio 4 The Spark Monday 25th May: Peter Macfadyen on Flatpack Democracy

Going back to the old ways in post-pandemic Britain? No thanks.

In pandemic Britain many people have discovered new ways to help their communities. Why not make working together for the benefit of all the residents permanent?

Since 2013 the Flatpack Democracy movement has shown that, by standing as a group of independent local councillors working closely together, people all over the country can and do steer their local councils to thrive and prosper, democratically.

Now, more than ever, we have the chance to refocus our local councils on what really matters to us and our neighbours. With many local elections postponed until 2021 we’ve got time to get prepared. Flatpack Democracy is a practical guide and inspiration for you to get going.
