Peter Macfadyen will introduce the session and three others who have unexpectedly found themselves in key positions in their local councils. They will take us through their stories and newfound wisdom.
The session will cover: why one might want to go down this route; key decisions on the route; and how functioning local democracy can be crucial in facing the climate emergency.
Short spoken sessions will be broken up with smaller group discussions and plenary.

(Peter's books, Flatpack Democracy and Flatpack Democracy 2.0 are avaialble from the publisher (Ecologic-books) who pays his taxes, as well as from other sources. Ecologic-books also sell 'revolutionary packs' at a reduced rate, best contacted via Peter's blog https://www.flatpackdemocracy.co.uk/ together these provide useful background and information on the whole issue of taking power locally and making stuff happen)

Can the event organizer make a Facebook event for it? It's a good way to get the word out, also to sign up and get in on my Facebook calendar.

Please any recording?

Hi, has this been recorded? And if not, will another meeting be held? A few of us in my local group would find it very useful. Please could you let us all know if this will be made available.

Here is the recording. It is unedited so you can simply skip through the 30 min breakout part.

Do you just copy and paste that link into search bar then (Ecosia)? As it isn't working


Fran January 29th, 2020 21:12

Weird, works for me


Berenice Westwood January 29th, 2020 21:15

Works for me too. I listened to it this morning.

Good morning, you may be putting it into the search field on Ecosia. You need to copy and paste it into the bar at the very top of the screen as it is a direct link.
