We're a community of trade unionists and progressive organisations committed to tackling the big challenges we face right now. To do that we've set up Grassroots, a conference and space that lets us share and hear the most exciting and practical ideas on campaigning, organising and mobilisation.
This year, Grassroots is going to focus on three areas that will help us tackle the challenges we face right now:
Rise up! Building support
How we campaign effectively around issues that demonstrate a need for change.
2, 4, 6, 8: How will people congregate
How can we build membership organisations that engage?
How do we communicate our messages effectively?
For each theme we have three speakers who will be given 20 minutes to put forward their idea and demonstrate its practical use. After we've heard all the ideas, there is a networking session to allow all participants to discuss what they've heard and share experiences.
Interested in being involved?
There are three ways you and your organisation can be involved:
- Submit an idea - do you have an idea on one of the themes that you think would be worth sharing?
- Be a part on the day - take up a stall, add info in the pack or advertise on our website
- Advertise to your members and supporters
