Now here is one of our most exciting and ambitious projects - the building of a radical education project that can be a grounding space for all the amazing youth of our generation who are rising across the UK and beyond. Its a big idea but we're committed to the importance of such a space and are going to be building a network of support around it throughout 2021 as we bring the project forward - for now, here's some of our basic framing, have a read!
What's the mission in one sentence?
To create a popular education space to support the connection, conscientization and flourishing imaginiation of the new generation of youth activists in the UK who are working for the liberation of all peoples.
What's the vision?
A physical space for the radical youth, where we can create a learning community, facilitate deeper connections and make space to learn from movement elders and resistance traditions.
What are the aims?
> Popular education and resistance traditions: learning from each other, across generations and from resistance histories for the challenges we face today.
> Collectivising our activism: Re-learning how to make our struggles collective and communal - away from neoliberal ideas of individualism.
> Building a shared sense of identity between the youth of the minority world and the Global Majority: Supporting our generation to choose the side of the historically marginalised peoples as we rise to meet the societal, climate and ecological crises.
