Take part in building a people’s manifesto for the movement

Our aims are simple but far reaching: we want to create a sense of agency and ownership for people within the Labour Party, and the political process more widely; encourage participants to move beyond critiques of the current system towards more tangible policy proposals and solutions; and inspire the Labour Party to think radically about policy areas that need further debate. There has been an increasing interest in deliberative processes as part of political movements themselves. Projects like the Leap Manifesto in Canada and the The Next System Project in the USA show what local groups with some passion and imagination can do to address the systemic challenges of today.
