Real Change: The Open Politics Network is shortly to be involved in a series of small ‘hearings’ (focus-group like meetings) across the UK to find out what concerned citizens in Britain think about the renewal of politics and the democratic process.
Ekklesia is a founding member of the coalition, and is seeking to get church and community groups with faith connections involved in the process – which is simple and encouraging. We are looking for groups of 5-10 people to get together and use some material from Real Change (http://opendemo.vm.bytemark.co.uk/realchange/?q=home) so that they can contribute their ideas and proposals to an emerging national movement to challenge the ‘no change’ politics of Westminster.
If you are interested and have links with a church or local group, please write to simon.barrow(ST)ekklesia.co.uk as soon as possible, heading your email ‘Real Change project’.
