We meet with our country at a crossroads. People are crying out for a movement that believes in sharing power and wealth. And we’re ready to answer that call with our ‘Ideas to change the South East’ members event.

Bringing together members and supporters from across the co-operative, labour and trade union movements, this is a chance to learn more and help shape our plans to build a fairer Britain.

The event will feature debate on the Co-operative Party's Policy Process for 2018: An Economy Where Wealth and Power Are Shared.

Highlights

Sessions and break-out sessions will include:

  • Leading the way in fighting modern slavery in our supply chains
  • Inspiring stories from local co-operatives making change in our region
  • Shaping Co-operative Party policy on the Economy
