Kirklees

« Kirklees » takes part in the European Local Democracy Week - a paneuropean event coordinated by the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe - as « Partner city »

The Kirklees Democracy Commission have been investigating what a strong local democracy should look like – for the next generation and beyond. Our ‘Growing a stronger local democracy’ report is based on a year of evidence-gathering and debate, in which over 1,000 people participated. Based on what we learned from our citizens and others, we’ve made 48 recommendations for growing a stronger local democracy in Kirklees. These include ideas for working with active citizens, making the most of digital technologies and culture, suggestions about councillors, decision-making and elections, and how to get local voices heard in regional devolution.

Partner(s) :

Kirklees Youth Council, The Media Centre Huddersfield, University of Huddersfield, Creative Scene, Hidden Track Theatre, It's a Word Thing, Hannah Directory, Conscious Youth CIC, Kirklees Young Employee's Network, Huddersfield Students' Union, Building African Caribbean Communities (BACC), Global Diversity Positive Action, Kirklees Libraries, LGiU (Local Government Information Unit) and UK Parliament outreach.
