ECA members who regularly visit our Active Citizenship pages will know that the ECA is a member of the loose alliance of over 30 organisations that comprise Democracy Matters. The alliance has just launched a new look website at complete with a new Democracy Diary and information about practical politics and how to get involved. The member’s corner provides a blog platform for members to share their views and currently is leading the debate over a ‘Parliament for Health’.

Titus Alexander, as convenor, and his team of volunteers are to be congratulated on achieving this great new look. The ECA sees the members of ‘Democracy Matters’ as our main allies in working for all providers of adult education to be a more democratic part of civil society and in making Britain, and Europe, more democratic places for adult learning to flourish.
