Event description

Description

Part of Repowering Britain, a series of events organised by the Labour Energy Forum in collaboration with Platform London, for the 2017 Labour Conference fringe.

With Andy Burnham (Mayor of Manchester – tbc), Felicity Premru (TSSA), Dave Watson (UNISON Scotland), Emma Hughes (Platform London), Franziska Paul (University of Glasgow), Melanie Smallman (SERA – tbc) and Jonathan Atkinson (Carbon Co-op).

The climate challenge means a wholesale transformation of our housing, transport, economic and social structures. German cities like Munich are aiming for 100% renewable energy by 2025. Even Lib Dem and Tory councils have built solar farms.

We can create thousands of decent jobs, keep energy revenues local, end fuel poverty and shift to 100% clean power. This is not a time for half-hearted pledges. Are Labour cities ready to show leadership?


Repowering Britain is a space for bold left visions for a transformed economy, society and energy system. We will bring together thinkers and doers from across the Labour Party and trade union movement to discuss what our country should look like in 10, 20, 30 years. The Party’s manifesto has inspired millions. We will build on that to envision a reindustrialised and democratised economy that addresses the climate crisis and hands back control.
