Capitalism creates crisis. Runaway climate change threatens the future of the planet. Racism and the far right are on the rise on a level unseen since the 1930s. Economic turmoil and austerity continue 10 years on from the credit crunch.

But there has also been resistance to the system. Across the globe new climate movements have burst onto the streets, mass movements have challenged racism and the far right and we have seen big revolts in Hong Kong and Sudan.

There is a now a renewed interest in socialist ideas. This weekend is a chance for students and young workers to debate socialist ideas and discuss how we can build a world that puts people before profit. It will include debates, culture, workshops, plenaries, live music, bookstalls and much more.
