Municipal socialism - focused on building collaborative, inclusive, sustainable, and democratically controlled local economies - has had a long and eventful history within leftwing political thought. But what form should it take in the twenty-first century? This year, TWT Policy Labs will explore several aspects of municipal socialism, helping to democratise the way we make and deliver policy in local spaces: Community Wealth Building, transport, social care and nightlife.
This interactive policy lab is the second of two sessions, and will focus on developing new policies in a topic area chosen by participants at our first workshop two weeks before. This will be followed by a strategic conversation about how we should campaign for those policies to be implemented.
