What:**SUBSIDIES AVAILABLE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE – DETAILS BELOW**
Join Global Justice Now as we travel to Toulouse for the European Summer University for Social Movements (ESU). The ESU is a unique gathering of over 1000 people for five days to explore big issues, share ideas and experiences and build the global movement against racism, corporate power and climate injustice. More info at esu2017.org
The ESU is organised by Attac – an international network of activists fighting for democratic, ecological alternatives to our current system. Global Justice Now is the Attac group in the UK.
A group of us will be travelling together from London in the morning of Tuesday 22 August and getting back to London in the evening of Tuesday 29 August. Join us for an amazing trip!
Exact details, including booking options, will be confirmed soon.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE ESU?
The ESU will bring together some of the most dynamic and interesting campaigners, activists and writers in Europe. Over five days there will be debates, introductory talks, workshops and discussions on a huge range of issues, including:
• fascism, populism and the rise of the far right
• refugee rights and migrant solidarity
• the power of finance capitalism
• fighting for climate justice in the 21st century
• the future of Europe
• alternatives to capitalism and neoliberalism
• devising high-impact creative actions
• building social movements in a time of crisis
That’s just a taste. There will be lots, lots more, including a strand of events run by and for young people. And as well as debate and discussion, the ESU is also about celebration and building community. There will also be an extensive cultural programme as part of the event, with live music, theatre, film screenings and more.
