Changing Politics: How we can come together to transform politics, starting where we are
with guest speaker: Laura Roth, Minim Municipalism
Tuesday 25th February 2020, 7.30pm - 9.30pm at The Grove School, Totnes

Politics is the least-trusted profession in Britain. With many politicians seemingly self-interested and unable to respond to the range of challenges we face, it's not surprising that trust is so low. Rather than waiting for politics to change, a growing number of people around the world are getting elected so that they can change the way that politics is done. These new municipalist movements have been experimenting with how to take – and transform – power in towns and cities, large and small. Women are at the forefront of many, creating new forms of engaged everyday politics that are transforming how we share resources to meet people’s needs. In this workshop, we’ll be joined by Laura Roth (via live video link), co-founder of Minim Municipalism and member of citizens platform, Barcelona en Comu, who’ll share how radical groups of citizens across the globe have been transforming politics where they are. Together, we’ll explore how we can come together to put the politics of everyday life back into the heart of communities.
