Compass Youth will be facilitating a session on "Going global in the fight against inequality"
Given that the progressive left is out of breath in Europe and across the world in the face of the increasing cultural hegemony of the right, it is critical that we work together on the ideas and the actions needed to deliver change.
How can we build coalitions on key issues through a “global reach, local impact” approach?
How can we better connect with our progressive soulmates abroad?
How can we find local solutions to global issues?
How can we promote a more social and democratic agenda that relates to people’s everyday lives?
Get inspired, get informed, get involved in this exciting event!
