About this event

Please join us for the launch of our new book AMPlify: An Alternative Manifesto Process.

6-8pm Thursday 8 July at Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds.

The event is chance to make connections across West Yorkshire and will include introductions from the writers to some of the ideas in the book.

More than 350 people took part in the alternative manifesto process in some way, contributing well over 700 hours of time. That participation ranged from joining a public zoom meeting to small groups of people having walks around West Yorkshire neighbourhoods.

To write the book we asked people to come up with new ideas and existing good ideas for the first West Yorkshire Mayor. The detail of those ideas was created in eighteen writing groups totalling 50 people, some of which were just a single person invited to write on a subject which they knew well, others were six or seven people who met regularly over two months to discuss the topic.

As much as possible, these groups brought together different kinds of knowledge and expertise relevant to the subject, in order to give them the best chance of coming up with innovative approaches.

Copies of the book will be available to buy at a discount.

Hyde Park Book Club has worked throughout the last year to keep the space as safe as possible. Guidelines can be found here and both we and the book club will keep watching regulations, and government announcements to make sure the evening satisfies government guidance.

Founded in 2015, Same Skies is the citizen-led regional democracy network and think tank for West Yorkshire.
