Junior school council meet the Major during Local democracy week
Local Democracy Week 2014
Local Democracy Week is an annual European-wide campaign that aims, on a national level, to raise young people’s awareness of how local Councils operate. It informs them about opportunities for taking part in local decision-making and, as a result, draws attention to how their involvement in local affairs is crucial in upholding local democracy. This year, Local Democracy Week takes place from 13th – 19th October 2014.
