Learning To Be Powerful:
How do we educate young people about politics?
4th July at 6.30pm
The Cole Room, Fabian Society
11 Dartmouth Street, London, SW1H 9BN
Are young people failing politics or is politics failing young people?
Young people have been disproportionately hit by austerity politics: tuition fees, abolition of Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA), youth unemployment, unaffordable housing. Many of those affected by the government’s politics can’t vote at all, and of those who can a majority choose not to.
Whose fault is this? And what can be done about it?
Labour Teachers and Young Fabians invite you to a collaborative discussion about educating young people to be powerful: what rights and responsibilities should they learn, where should they learn them and who should make sure they are learnt?
This event is part of the Young Fabians Policy Commission into Generation Crisis
