Start building your regional networks of likeminded people who care about local democracy. We've made Mattermost (like WhatsApp) channels for each area, and set up When2Meets so people in each area can find a time to have a Zoom call, start getting to know each other and get planning.

If you'd like updates from XR UK's Future Democracy Hub then sign up here to stay informed - https://www.xrdemocracy.uk/signup

Research your local council, would the current councillors support community democracy? If they don’t, is there potential to elect some that would? Every election is an opportunity for change…


Share the journey, with each other in your towns and villages across the UK, and with our online community. We have so much to learn, from those trailblazers who are already doing this, to those who learned what “grassroots” meant only yesterday, we are all united by our belief that collectively, we have the power to make the change we want to see. As ever, feedback is hugely appreciated, let us know what helps, what is less helpful, anything at all!
 
With all of the love

Thanks Margaret.

This is like the mad hatters tea party. Yet another app. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

try using a different device, with a misspelling of your name like Niikkii and leave the password blank. if that doesn't work, we could put it in for you.
