This online event, organised by Civic Revival working with Democracy4Bexhill, brings together many of England’s leading advocates for, and practitioners of, local community empowerment.
The aim is both to inspire the residents of Bexhill with some of the possibilities that their new local council could offer, by sharing information on what other places have already achieved, and to inspire activists in thousands of places across England to embark on a similar journey.
Originally planned as a full day event at Bexhill’s iconic De La Warr Pavilion, the pandemic circumstances mean that the discussion will now take place online, and squeeze a half day’s content into two hours of rapid-fire information, insight and exchange of views.
The event will feature the launch of “A Manifesto for a Civic Revival”, which sets out principles and ambitions for genuine local democratic decision-making intended to be put before all those standing for local councillor roles at the May local elections.
