Innovating Local Democracy Conference


The International Week for Democratic Innovation comprises a series of conferences in Manchester at the end of January on deliberative democracy and other forms of participatory decision-making. This event gives interested Fellows a chance to get involved, and is geared towards establishing ideas, connections and perhaps some concrete actions for the RSA North network in 2020
