The World Transformed

Add to calendar

Are you a current or prospective Political Education Officer, or just interested in getting something going in your CLP? If so, this is the session for you. Led by Political Education Officers, this session will introduce attendees to the role, draw attention to some of the great work already being done and discuss some of the difficulties people face in developing socialist education within Labour. We want to come out of the session with a set of demands for the party, aimed at how it can take the role more seriously and properly support initiatives at the grassroots.
