NICAFC Summer Conference 2017
Sat 24 June 2017, 10:00 – 17:00 BST
NICAFC Summer Conference 2017!!
As the government's disastrous Higher Education reforms make their way through Parliament, Further Education continues to be dismantled, and poisonous far-right narratives are spreading across society, it is an absolutely crucial time for left-wing students and education workers to come together and organise. Student movements both in the UK and globally have historically played a key role in fighting for progressive and radical social change, and that collective power is needed now more than ever.
So join education activists from across Ireland at the NICAFC's annual summer conference! There will be a whole host of discussions and workshops on key education-related issues facing the student movement right now. Just a few of the topics we'll be discussing and strategising around are:
- Fighting the HE reforms & building the NSS boycott
- TEF OFF
- Protecting Further Education
- Our vision for the NHS
- Climate activism
and so much more!
We will be inviting a number of reprsentatives to run workshops inclduing Is Cannabis safer than Alcohol, The Labour Party and other grassroots organisations.
There will be an exhibition area full of stalls, freebies and sign up events. The list will include Dominos, Boojum, building socities, Cinemas, and much more.
There will also be a screening of 'I Daniel Blake'
This is also our key democratic event of the year where we will not only be debating and voting on policy which sets our direction as an organisation, but also electing our new 2017/2018 Exective Committee.
The conference is FREE to attend - register here now! We'd recommend booking your transport as early as possible to keep costs down.
