Demand the Impossible 2018
**A free course for young people aged 17-25. Lunch and travel costs included. Apply now! demandtheimpossible.org.uk/apply/**
We live in a time of crisis. From Trump to Tommy Robinson, racism and xenophobia are on the rise. After a summer of heatwaves and fires across the world, climate change is having deadly impacts that are set to get worse. And cuts, the housing crisis and low wages are hurting millions right now, with young people bearing the brunt.
But there’s hope: movements for change are everywhere. Hundreds of thousands came out into the streets to stand up to Trump and Theresa May’s attempts to cosy up a racist and misogynist. People are openly questioning capitalism - words like ‘socialism’ and ‘communism’ are back in conversation. From Barcelona to London movements are fighting for their rights in housing, work and control over their lives.
If you want to understand what’s happening better, and explore how we can change things, Demand the Impossible is for you. It will include:
>> Meet like-minded young people from across London. Share ideas and experiences in a lively, supportive environment
>> Interactive sessions on topics such as capitalism, colonialism, climate change, London’s housing crisis, and how to fight for social change
>> Talks from cutting edge activists and campaigners with in-depth analysis and real life experience of social movements
>> Pathways into dynamic campaign groups active in London right now
