Talk in Leeds “What We Can Learn from Rojava”


2016 was a year of profound change and political uncertainties, with a fairer and more sustainable world seeming ever more distant.
In response to this Leeds Beckett Students’ Union in partnership with Leeds for Change are organising a public event where people can explore ideas, politics, and action for a progressive, sustainable, social future.
This is following on from past Summat events and run in a similar way. However Tidal will be having a different role this year. Tidal have passed the organisational baton this year and instead are going to be focusing all our attention on putting on a series amazing workshops and panels.
Tidal and Leeds for Change will be putting on different streams of panels and workshops, the Real Junk Food Project will be providing food, there will be a marketplace and an opening and closing plenary.
The stream of workshops and panels Tidal are putting on with be focusing on Global issues and will be gathering a range of guest speakers from the wider global justice movement to Leeds, to run workshops on economic justice, race, climate and energy to help build and inspire a bigger more effective global justice movement in Leeds.
Leeds for Change on the other hand will keep things local and will be putting on a series of panels, walks, film screenings workshops and much more showcasing the amazing groups in Leeds and what they are doing to bring about change.

The timetable has been announced for this event and the ‘what can we learn from Rojava’ workshop is going to be at 11:30.
