Digital engagement at the rescue of democracy’s wellbeing

Carnegie UK’s recent report on democratic wellbeing found that two in five people in England say that democracy is not working, and yet 74% reported they were not involved at all in local decision-making.

Can digital engagement turn this trend around and help build trust between governments and their communities?
What do we know about the state of democracy in England?How can digital engagement reverse the negative trend around democratic wellbeing?
What does CitizenLab’s impact report reveal about digital engagement’s true power?


During this webinar, Aline and Lora from CitizenLab will be joined by Hannah and Rachel, two of the co-authors of the Carnegie report on democratic wellbeing, to answer those questions.

Carnegie UK is an organisation with a mission to improve the collective wellbeing of people in the UK and Ireland.
