The Peer Learning Network brings together representatives from local government and other public sector bodies to discuss, share and learn from experiences of participatory and deliberative democracy.

The network was originally established as part of the Innovation in Democracy Programme, and has been continued since to share learning. It consists of:

  • An online forum, where members can share resources, questions and experiences; and,
  • Regular online meetings on specific topics related to participation and deliberation.

The network is free to join and open to anyone from local government or the wider public sector. Get in touch if you're interested in being involved.
