Manchester youth event: skill up and challenge the establishment (Global Justice Now)

We Rise – Organise!

Young people have the power to challenge the establishment. Learn the skills to make that a reality.

Organised by Global justice Now, Momentum, People & Planet and Demand the Impossible.

In the last 12 months young people have shaken the establishment. Theresa May thought her snap election was a done deal – until we voted in our hundreds of thousands to transform the result. The protests against Trump scared him off from his ‘state visit’, at least for now. And young workers have been standing up for their rights – taking on multinationals like Deliveroo and McDonald’s.

Now is the time to get organised, get skilled up and build our power even more.

Workshops include

  • How to run a kick ass social media campaign
  • Interrupting the everyday: creating powerful stunts
  • Speed debating: trade deals and corporate power
  • Pint and politics: how to persuade your mates
  • How to combat racism in the media
  • Standing up for workers’ rights

After party
Getting organised and building a movement is not just about meetings, it is also about making friends with fellow activists!
To honour this, we will be heading Partisan Collective afterwards for a night of music, dancing and fun. The first 50 people to sign up for the after party on the day will get discounted tickets.

 

Momentum mobilises people to campaign for a Labour government and for a more democratic society. Come and learn from their team of organisers and social media experts who are shaking up politics.

Global Justice Now campaigns against corporate power and global inequality, challenging everything from corporate-led trade deals to violent border controls.

Demand the Impossible runs courses and events for young people on politics, activism and ideas to change the world.

People & Planet is a student-led movement that empowers young people with the skills, confidence and knowledge they need to make change happen, at home and globally.
