Join with us in Stirling as we bring together members and supporters from across the Scotland to discuss the Co-operative Party’s Scotland and UK policy platforms and new Food Justice campaign.

The program is being worked on but we plan to include sessions on:

  • Community, place and power,  Looking at bottom up initiatives which build stronger communities, we seek to answer wider questions about how power is distributed around the UK, and how to rebalance this to give citizens and communities a greater say and stake. With the EU Withdrawal Bill reigniting the debate on devolution and with Westminster retaining control over aspects of law-making which are otherwise devolved to Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast, this policy consultation proposes a co-operative vision.
  • Climate change, energy and the environment Building on the Co-operative Party’s longstanding commitment to action on climate change and our belief that we can achieve more for our environment when working co-operatively than we can alone. We need to reflect on how co-operative approaches can convince and engage those communities who may lose out from environmental measures, whether it’s job losses in older, more polluting industries or new levies on higher emission cars in our cities and towns
  • Food Justice: Find out how you can take part in the Co-operatives Party new campaign, demanding a right to food justice.
  • Co-operative Party Womens’ Network for Scotland: campaigning for shared parental leave

This will include the opportunity to speak with some of our elected representatives, our affiliated unions and spokespeople from local co-operatives as well as opportunities for networking with like-minded people.

This event is open to non-members, so please share with friends, Labour Party and trade union colleagues etc., so please sharebut you must register in advance to secure a place.

Registration is £10 (£5 concessions) which includes a sandwich lunch.
