  • Gary Younge — Journalist and professor of sociology, Manchester University

December saw the election of a government without a plan to tackle climate breakdown or fix an economy that has failed so many.

Exciting and transformative ideas were put forward during this election but failed to cut through. This agenda remains our best chance to tackle the seismic issues we face, yet people have lost the will to believe change is possible. How can we learn from mistakes, and build on the strength of our ideas to continue making the case for a better future?

Join a panel of brilliant speakers and campaigners to discuss what we do next.

Tickets are free but spaces are limited so book early to avoid missing out!

After discussion there will be drinks and a social. This venue is fully wheelchair accessible.
