What makes Britain tick?
The Ten Towns project is CommonGround’s first initiative; a bid to listen and learn from communities where the decision to leave the EU was decisive. This plan has two main parts, which we’ll carry out in each town: a fact-finding mission, and an open-invitation “huddle” where ideas for making the country work better can be exchanged, debated and developed.
We plan to visit Birmingham, Bradford, Felixstowe, Hull, Northampton, Portsmouth, Stoke-on-Trent, Sunderland, Swansea, and Wolverhampton.
We hope to meet with local MPs, leaders from both the Remain and Leave campaigns, councillors, school teachers, university student leaders, business owners, prominent cultural figures, and community outreach workers.
We will make our findings public, to help ensure that the voices of real people are being heard – particularly in the capital. And we’ll use Ten Towns as the basis of our future campaigns to build a better Britain. If you want to meet us, help us or join forces with us, get in touch.
