Government by the People - Not over the people 

The way Britain is currently governed fails to serve the best interests of Yorkshire.

A new Democratic Yorkshire will unite the County, provide a fair and just society, enable our citizens to fully participate in decision making, and provide hope of a better future for our children.

Albert Einstein famously observed: ‘The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.’

We believe that it is time to look for an alternative approach to governing our County, one that puts the people in charge of Yorkshire’s affairs. 


The intention is to eventually launch a full-scale independent citizen-led constitutional convention on Yorkshire's future, one where ordinary people, not just the politicians and experts, will have their say and decide what happens.  

But there is still a lot of groundwork to do before we get to that stage.  We have given ourselves the deadline of Yorkshire Day (1st August) 2024 to produce a preliminary report on this groundwork.

The first task is to think about the long-term outcomes we hope a new Democratic Yorkshire will achieve over time.  The second task before us will be to start putting a democratic framework together, one capable of delivering on these desired outcomes.

Democratic Yorkshire is a member of the International Citizen Network, we will be calling upon the wisdom of other groups within the Network and elsewhere to help us complete these tasks.  It is a job we cannot do alone, so please help us as much as you are able.
