Power to the People – next steps with Max Rashbrooke

The first in our series of RESET Conversations, Power to the People asked the big questions about what are the next steps a more participative democracy? This was a follow up to the 2019 discussion with Max Rashbrooke and part of our Reset Conversations for the 2020 Summit.

Author, journalist and academic, Max is back to discuss next steps to move from a representative to participative democracy. He delves into how citizens are directly shaping policy at the local and national level and looks towards using this time as an opportunity to reset for the better.

2020 is the reset year of the century. Faced with COVID-19 impacts, rising inequalities, climate change and distrust in the political class, how we govern and shape decisions based on what is good for people and the planet is more than ever on the agenda.

Come along and join in the conversation.
