So, this episode we're continuing on with our exploration of democracy, as the 'ordinary' persons opportunity to contribute to the conversations that govern our societies. And we're taking it from theory into practice again by looking at how democratic principles might be applied to a living environment.

To do this we’re talking to London Renters Union and Sandford Housing Cooperative.
