Democracy 21: Let's Build A Democracy Fit for The 21st Century

  • Glasgow Marriott Hotel 500 Argyle Street Glasgow, Scotland, G3 8RR United Kingdom (map)

Lesley Riddoch and Darren McGarvey, amongst others, appear at Electoral Reform Society Scotland’s ‘Democracy 21’ conference in Glasgow.

From Democracy 21:
'This major national conference starts with the premise that people should have collective power to make good things happen for themselves and their communities and to stop bad things happening. This is a simple definition of power. Democracy is the most equal distribution of that power possible.

The purpose of the event is to bring together citizens, activists, community groups, campaigns and unions to think about the challenges for democracy in the current political, social and technological context and to attempt to collectively imagine the evolution of our current thinking, institutions and practice of democracy.'

Speakers include Lesley Riddoch and Darren McGarvey, as well as others.
