What are some communities where large-scale deliberation is happening?

@elplatt up in shetland we have the Althing, which is less deliberative but does have the advantage of being well-integrated into the mainstream community: althing.org.uk/

@lupine good to know about, thanks! Seems like a recurring debate event?

@elplatt yep, I think it's structured a bit like a club, anyone can submit a proposal to be debated. Local news covers the debates and conclusions in quite some detail when they happen
