So you heard of us at Extinction Rebellion. Thanks for checking us out!

 

We helped create some discussion kits for you to use at the April events in London, and now we want to help you as you develop new forms of democracy.

There are three different ways we can help you:

  • We’re developing a range of shorter form discussion kits which you will be able to download and print yourself for use in small groups of up to 6 people. Our intention, when making these, is to enable you to have respectful and informed discussions on important topics. They take about half an hour to use, and come with full instructions. See the table below.
  • You can also use our current printed kits on key topics. They are designed both for a small group of up to 6, and for larger events where people sit in groups taking 2-3 hours. The kits come with full instructions, and we can support you in organising a larger event. We will send you a kit in the post. Again see the table below
  • And we’re all experienced in designing imaginative events using a variety of games and discussion methods. If you’d like help with this, or would just like a chat, do get in touch with bobb@talkshopuk.org.
Also tell bobb@talkshopuk.org about topics you’d like – you can get a feel for the sorts of topics we’re considering, and also add suggestions in our discussion document.

Also, check out our thoughts and ideas on better forms of democracy and decision making here!

Could this be the way towards a new kind of well-informed, inclusive and respectful democracy? 
                We hope you’ll join us in shaping that dream, and making it come true!
