How to Take Back Power – Municipalism and Energy Democracy

Presented by the Radical Municipalism Cluster

Radical Municipal politics is based on dispersing power into everyday lives, changing who and how we make decisions on our futures. A number of cities have already established, or are campaigning for, municipal energy companies – many of which are defined by democratic control and the building of non-market, and to a degree non-state, institutions. This workshop brings together to UK activists working on energy democracy to discuss why – and how – we can create our own citizen led municipal energy companies.

This session will be led by James Angel (Switched on London) and Ben Aylott (Energy Democracy Greater Manchester).
