Public Square is an action-research programme to understand how citizens can be more involved in making local decisions.
We are working with councils, residents, and councillors in four places in the UK to understand how they can improve their local democracies.
Led by mySociety and The Democratic Society – and funded by Luminate. We will use a variety of new approaches, including digital tools, and new ways of doing democracy, to help these places tackle a local democracy challenge.
What we learn will help us to offer practical help for others to improve local democracy. We'll be sharing in guides, playbooks and other publicly available resources in the near future.
