Our schools, colleges and universities need to be democratic and participatory and build grassroots power for students and teachers of all ages. What should the democratic structures and processes of our National Education Service look like? How can we include educational institutions in plans for the green new deal and local municipal socialism? This session is for students, educators and anyone else interested in education.
This is part of our 'Manifesto for the Movement' project. Over the course of the four days, hundreds of festival attendees in collaboration with policy experts will build a ‘Manifesto For The Movement’ - a radical document that will be presented to MPs at the end of the festival. Get involved in any TWT Policy Lab to be a part of this.
