Upcoming Event: “We Rise- Organise” youth training #Manchester 21 Oct

There’s an exciting free event that is coming up for young people in Manchester. We’ll run workshops from social media campaigning to combating racism in the media. If you, or somebody you know, are interested read on for more information.

We Rise – Organise!

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

Book your free ticket now

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.

Will there be workshops on

  • How to find out who has what skills and knowledge in your group and hook them up with people who want those skills and knowledge
  • How to welcome and integrate new people who don’t have friends in the group already
  • How to sustain morale beyond the boom and bust of ‘the next big event’
  • How to deal with intra-group conflicts.

Er. no.
