This is TALKSHOP
Imagine a country that draws on the good sense of ordinary people like you and me when making decisions and passing new laws.
TALKSHOP develops new ways of discussing and reaching agreement about the issues that really matter to us all - local, national, international. Tricky questions like what should we do about health and social care, or how we should improve British democracy. TALKSHOP is about making sure that everyone has a voice in the matters that concern them - so that democracy works for everyone.
