Let's Transform the World!

Event Date: 23 to 26 September 2017

War on Want is supporting the World Transformed in Brighton 23 to 26 September.

The World Transformed is an inclusive and exciting event covering a wide range of topics from the practical realities of electoral politics, to wider questions like how to build a collaborative progressive vision appropriate to the 21st century, how we can solve the climate crisis, how we deliver migrant and refugee justice, Trade and Brexit, and what would progressive internationalism and an ethical foreign policy actually look like as well as other major global issues.

Come along for workshops, debates, live music, art exhibitions, children’s activities and more.

War on Want is supporting this fringe festival in Brighton 23 to 26 September, which takes place alongside Labour Party Conference

Now, more than ever, we need to imagine a different world, , one that focuses on the needs of ordinary people, communities and our planet.
