Why localism is more important than ever

In a country polarised not only by Left and Right, but also Leave and Remain, few agendas are able to inspire consensus. Localism, however, might be one of them. With the events of the past few months front and centre in the mind, wouldn’t now be a good time to discuss the constitutional reform and the move towards more efficient, effective and inclusive governance? 

Shaping the next steps of this agenda is more important than ever – join Demos at the Liberal Democrat Party Conference to discuss if localism were to be the first step in consensus post-Brexit, what should it look like?

Speakers on the panel include:

  • Christine Jardine MP
  • Nick Tyrone – Chief Executive, Effective Governance Initiative
  • Polly Mackenzie – Chief Executive, Demos (Chair)
  • Baroness Thornhill
  • Dr Mark Pack – Associate Director, Teneo


Date: Monday 16th September

Time: 11:30am – 12:30pm

Venue: Branksome Suite, Bournemouth International Centre
