About

The UK's first G1000 will be held in Cambridge on September 30th.

A G1000 is an innovative approach to understanding the wishes and desires of a community.

It brings a randomly-selected, representative group of residents together for one day to prioritise policy areas and develop concrete proposals to address them.

Local politicians, civil servants, employers and members of civil society are also invited to attend and participate on the day, as equals, with the randomly selected residents.

At the end of the day ten proposals are chosen to be carried forward by groups of volunteers, in coordination with councillors and other interested parties.

The aim is for a truly representative sample of 1000 people to gather, deliberate with each other in a respectful environment, and decide together what is best for their communities. It is a way to strengthen communities and get people involved in realising and implementing their own ideas for their community. It's a way to do democracy differently.
