The Independent Working Class Education Network and the Ella Baker School are hosting the fourth in their series of meetings on establishing  political education networks on Wednesday 17 June using the Zoom online application.

The seminar follows in-person meetings held in Durham, Leeds and Birmingham over the last 12 months. The aim is to bring together a dozen or more key organisations to discuss current work and build solidarity.

In July 2019, a number of organisations developing high-quality political education materials met for initial discussions in Durham, the day before the Big Meeting.

The Political Education Together initiative was inspired by a statement by Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell who said in 2018: “The Labour movement has a rich history of working-class self-education and because of new platform technologies we’re able to revive and expand on that tradition like never before.

“This work is at the cutting edge of the movement, and I look forward to its radical expansion over the coming year.”

The Zoom meeting on 17 June will focus on establishing what is needed with regard to political education, clarifying good practice, learning from each other and building for the future.
