Join Councilor Fiona Barrows (People Powered Politicians) and Richard Wilson, CEO of Iswe to explore how to build a democracy fit for the twenty-first century.

This session from Iswe Foundation explores the changing dynamic between politicians and citizens. Current challenges are just too great for only a chosen few to address effectively. Iswe ask us to step up, exercise our democracy muscles and work together to address polarisation in our communities and do democracy ourselves.

The Fête of Britain is a four-day celebration of collaboration and imagination in the face of the great challenges of our time. From the climate crisis to the cost of living, nothing is off the table. The Fête of Britain takes over Aviva Studios from 22 to 25 February. Find out more: The Fête of Britain
