RSA Birmingham: Deliberation and democracy

Fellowship Event



  • Community engagement
  • Housing

How can we make democracy work better? How can we amplify the voices of Birmingham’s different communities? What is the role of deliberation?

Join us for a series of lightning talks to learn more about deliberation and democracy, and how to make it work at the local level. Lightning talks will be followed by breakout groups where we can share reflections and learnings together and connect with others who are interested in bringing the principles of deliberative democracy to the communities that they are part of.

The RSA are also starting some new work in Birmingham, and through this event, you’ll have the opportunity to help shape it. Our new project will use deliberative practices to bring citizen voice back into the decision-making process around housing and neighbourhoods, and positively impact on economic security and wellbeing.

This event is free to attend and open to Fellows, friends, and colleagues interested in supporting the work of the RSA.
