Experiments in Democracy

At the beginning of March 2016 we held a number of events around 'experiments in democracy', talks to inspire new ways of thinking about democratic participation.

We have a great set of videos from the main speaker event and a set of notes from the open discussion. If you were inspired by these talks and want to stand as a local candidate in upcoming elections, Marie-Louise Holland has offered to provide advice

These events were organised with 38 Degrees Cambridge, Pivotal - Cambridge Festival of Change, and Transition Cambridge.

New Water Group!

With Climate Change likely to bring increased rainfall to some parts of the world, a new action group is forming to work out how to stay dry in Cambridge. This group seeks to come up with practical solutions mitigating localised flooding.

After a successful launch at the beginning of February, there's a number of events in the pipeline including discussion groups, trips around flood prevention measures implemented in Cambridge and field trips to London to see larger more complex solutions implemented by community groups.

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all.

However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations.

We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!
