Flatpack Democracy is a DIY method for communities to win back their council as non-party candidates, pioneered by multiple towns around the UK.

The Flatpack 2021 campaign supports people to reclaim local politics from the systems and political parties that are currently failing them. The campaign wants to support communities to take back power by winning local elections, of which there are thousands in May 2021.

Flatpack Democracy will work with groups who want to stand for election and, once elected, collaborate to make their parish, town or district councils ambitious, effective and responsive to their local community’s needs.

Peter McFadyen's 2019 book Flatpack Democracy 2.0: Power Tools for Reclaiming Local Democracy can be purchased here.  

Civic Revival is proud to be a friend and ally of Flatpack 2021, and we hope Flatpack is pleased to be a kindred spirit of Civic Revival.
