Localism - the salvation of devolution?

Press Release from the National Assembly for Wales

Democratic Deficit Session 2

Localism - the salvation of devolution?

At a time when the national and regional media in Wales often fail to engage the people of Wales in the work of the National Assembly, Rosemary Butler AM, the Assembly’s Presiding Officer, would like to invite you to a take part in a discussion on the regional and hyper-local media’s role.

The session will take the form of a round-robin round-table discussion where you can give your views on a number of new and emerging channels

of communicating with audiences across Wales as well as more traditional local initiatives.

The results of this session will be used to draw together a report on how the National Assembly can work with all sections of the media in Wales to encourage more people to become active civic citizens. This event follows the Cardiff University conference on community journalism, held earlier this year.
