Tomorrow's Democracy - Associated event by Newport City Council
Time & Location
About the Event
Newport City Council will be welcoming a number of prominent speakers to the city on November 5 for a one-day conference.
Immediately following the Newport Rising Festival taking place on November 2-4, which will celebrate Newport's Chartist heritage, the conference will bring those events up-to-date through a series of debates looking at how democracy works in the modern world.
Using the theme of Tomorrow's Democracy, the event will explore the changing picture of modern politics and representation and how the traditional view of democracy is being challenged through new technologies and shifting public attitudes.
Speakers at the event will include:
• Cllr. Debbie Wilcox, Leader, Newport City Council
• Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive, RSA
• Paul Mason, Political Commentator
• Bobby Duffy, Policy Institute Director, King's College London
• Chloe Smith MP, Minister for the Constitution
The event is being held as part of the council's corporate plan commitments to develop an exciting programme of local events, raising the profile of Newport on the national stage, and hopefully encouraging more visitors and investors into the city.
