The Regional Democracy Think Tank for West Yorkshire

About the Same Skies network

Following our 'What Kind of Region Do We Want To Live In?' event in Manningham, Bradford in November 2015, the organising group have become the Same Skies network - working for a hopeful, fair, prosperous and inclusive regional democracy.

The network's priorities are:

  • encouraging the democratisation of devolutionary processes towards self-determination

  • identifying and supporting positive ideas for regional democracy.

  • engaging with people across political parties and of none whilst also ensuring that the collective engages on its own terms and doesn't allow itself to become a tool of any one political party.

The founding members of the network are:
