TALK SHOP - doing democracy differently

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.

‘Much better than sitting still and listening to speakers for two hours’. and ‘Great way to hear other people's views, and to hear alternative solutions’. Worcester climate change event participants

Hay-Making

Our latest innovation was developed at the Hay Festival Digital 2020: a coggle map which is a record of the event that combines the spoken words of the speakers and the written chat from the audience.
