Members of Edinburgh’s Active Citizenship Group come from organisations such as the Workers’ Educational Association, the Global Justice Now, the City of Edinburgh Council’s Community Learning & Development and the University of Edinburgh.
The group regularly holds large scale, participatory public seminars on topical issues related to citizenship. Some of our more recent events have looked at drugs policy in Scotland, immigration, the EU Referendum, fracking and TTIP. Our seminars are designed to be as participatory as possible, enabling members of the public to fully engage in debate with policy-makers and academics so that informed action is possible. We also work in partnership with organisations to help make their events more participatory.
