Who we are
Open Britain played a central role in the UK's Brexit debate, initially by leading the 'Remain' campaign in the referendum, then by pushing for a final say on the Brexit deal as part of the People's Vote campaign.
Nowadays, Open Britain is a campaign organisation dedicated to the revitalisation of UK democracy. Through our campaigns, we aim to address some of the key weaknesses in our democracy and challenge those forces that are intent on undermining it.
What we want to achieve
1. We want to increase public understanding of, and engagement with, all levels of democracy in the UK
2. We want to replace the outdated First Past the Post electoral system with a form of proportional representation
3. We want to encourage and support community activists to campaign on the issues they care about, be they local, regional or national
Our Democracy Unleashed campaign aims to deliver the first of these objectives and PR2028 the second. Our platform to support community activists across the UK will be launched later in 2021 and will deliver the third.
