This event is hosted by the Connected Sociologies Curriculum Project and the Knowledge is Power programme at BSix.

The Connected Sociologies Curriculum Project, an educational platform that provides open-access resources for students, teachers and academics who are interested in ‘decolonising’ school, college and university curricula. The Connected Sociologies Curriculum Project is a project of the Sociological Review Foundation.

The Knowledge is Power programme is a parallel curriculum of events and workshops to discuss some of the major issues facing society and young people today. It is a place for students to share experiences of the world, to make greater sense of those experiences, and to build Knowledge and Power upon them.
