ABOUT THE CAFE
The Oxford Democracy Cafe held its inaugural meeting in July 2018.
We hope that the Democracy Café will become a regular place / space for people to come together to discuss issues and ideas about democracy, and how to use them locally and nationally to work towards a better society.
All opinions will be heard respectfully, debated, explored and challenged.
At our inaugural meeting we raised questions about
What could a ‘new democracy’ mean?
What role does democracy have in a networked world?
How should democracy in this country change?
Topics discussed so far:
ODC 2 Participative Democracy
ODC 3 Is the existing political party system good for democracy?
ODC 4 Citizens' Assemblies
ODC 5 Gender Democracy
Following the enthusiasm for the Café becoming a regular space to meet, further regular meetings are planned. Please join us.
