Unravelling and Reimagining the UK's Relationship with the EU
What do you think about the referendum outcome? What do you consider to be the key factors that prompted people to vote Leave or Remain, or perhaps not to vote at all? What do you think is important in the UK's relationship with the EU and its Member States moving forward? This event series explores these questions with diverse groups of the public within our local community.
In December 2016, we spent a day filming in Cambridge and Wisbech. We asked people three questions:
- What do you think about Brexit?
- What do you want from a future relationship between the UK, EU and other European countries?
- What’s your message to Theresa May and her government?
Here's the film that we've made from the day. We're using this to stimulate debate at our public engagement events. What do you think?
