MP Focus Webinar - Nick De Bois

  • Feb 24, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Online Meeting

GlobalNet21 is planning to hold regular monthly webinars with decision makers - MPs, MEPs, and we hope Assemblymen and women, congressmen and senators from different countries. The topic of these webinars will be the state of democracy globally and what we need to do to recreate democracy to make it work for us all.

Nick De Bois MP has agreed to pilot the second of these webinars where he will be interviewed on the state of democracy in the UK and how it needs to change to reflect both local and global demands. He believes that the Executive (Government and Cabinet) is far too strong in the UK and the legislature (Parliament) far too weak. He favours the American "separation of powers" model where the legislature has much more independence from the Government itself and can thus be more accountable to its electorate.

Those attending the webinar will be able to ask questions by text and even start a debate by text.

We hope that these webinars will become a regular feature where we engage politicians of many countries about what democracy means in the 21st century and how politicians can connect with people and communities in a more effective way.

Your Annual Subscription 

Although membership of our site is free we do expect all those who attend our events to pay an annual subscription that covers attendance not just one meeting but also to the vast majority of our meetups and webinars for any one year. It also allows you to bring one guest free to every meeting or webinar.
