Events - democracy
The views and opinions of local people play an important part in shaping the services provided by the council. Taking part in local democracy is an effective way of influencing what happens to you, your neighbours and your community.
Bracknell Forest Council are continually looking for ways to engage with people who live, work and learn in the borough and to raise public awareness of the opportunities to find out about and to influence decision making.
Events related to local democracy are held throughout the year to allow people to become more familiar with the council and democratic process. Some of our past events have included:
- Citizenship Ceremony event
- A Day in the Life of a Councillor
- A young persons debate 'What is important to me?'

Local Democracy week
Local Democracy week is an annual event that aims to increase people’s knowledge of local democracy and the idea of getting more involved locally.
“Human rights make for more inclusive communities” was the leading theme of the week in 2012, which ran from Monday 15th to Sunday 21st of October.
Young people from across the borough put Bracknell Forest under the spotlight when they took part in Local Democracy week events. Further details can be found on our Promoting Local Democracy blog.
