2018 has been an important year for social movements. We have seen ACORN tenants groups successfully stop housing evictions, Grenfell campaigners demanding justice and communities stopping new Fracking sites; health and education groups have stepped up their fight against the ever expanding hostile environment policy and cleaners at the Daily Mail won the Living Wage.
On the 21st of July we'll be coming together in the Rose Lipman Building in Hackney, London to celebrate these campaigns, discuss how we can work closer together & learn from each other and what strategies we need to achieve systemic change to our economy and society.
The NEON Summer Gathering will be our biggest event of 2018 and it will be your chance to meet NEON members, organisers, activists and campaigners from across the country. In addition to workshops and plenaries, there will be networking, a big dinner (included in the ticket price!) and music & spoken word in the evening. Here is the full programme!
There will be a professional Creche available from 10am - 5:30pm. Please let us know as soon as possible if you will be bringing your kids to the event. If you require travel support to be able to attend the event, then please also get in touch with us. Similarly, if you need somewhere to stay in London, we will aim to help you with that: all you need to do is fill out this form. And if you already live in London, but would be happy to host one or several NEON members at your house for the weekend, then please fill out this form.
We really hope you can join us and cannot wait to meet you in July. For any questions, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Media passes are available for this event - please contact email@example.com.
