Imagine you had 20 years to shape a better democracy…

…what would that look like? And what do we need to be putting in place now to make it happen?

Most people would agree that we need a healthy democracy: one that’s fair, accessible and transparent. It’s easy to point to the ways in which our current democracy is not living up to those ideals — but how can we set it on a new, better direction?

At this free event, our panellists will describe their visions for a better future. We’ll be asking for yours, too.
