Council Governance Review Panel-Wednesday 28 November

The next Governance Review meeting of RBKC Council allows members of the Public to share their vision of the way RBKC ought to operate. It will be on 28 November at 6.30 pm at the Town Hall and they are urging the public to attend.

Key questions that will be covered include:

  • Thinking about decisions that the Council makes on council services, what decisions would you particularly want to be involved in?
  • In the past, did you want to be involved in particular Council decisions and didn’t get the chance. What were these?
  • Are there any examples of when the Council has involved local people in decision-making that you thought worked well?
  • In general, what more could we do to involve you in our decision-making?
  • If you did want to be more involved in local decisions, what stops you?

Mr. Pietro Bartolo is the doctor of the Italian island of Lampedusa, the European territory closest to Libya, which has become a prime transit point for migrants from Africa, the Middle East and Asia wanting to enter Europe.

Mr Bartolo has published a book, “Lampedusa Gateway to Europe”, which is the essential testimony of his work for twenty-five years on the front line of perhaps the largest mass migration in human history.

While he continues with his profession in Lampedusa, he has decided to embark into a campaign to raise awareness on immigration which promotes acceptance and integration of migrants. That is taking him around Italy and Europe, in schools, universities, no profit organizations and public meetings. His testimony is also part of a Italian documentary, “ Fire at sea” , which was awarded with the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.
