Join the North of Tyne Mayor, Jamie Driscoll and guest speakers who have CWB specialist areas of expertise. 

Building on the success of our People, Pits and Politics Festival held in Durham in 2018, we are now planning a series of more focussed local events. The vision is the same: we’re bringing together the very best in our community organisers, political trainers and alternative media to empower ordinary people to do extraordinary things. 

The programme for the day is very much focussed on the more concrete rather than abstract aspects of CWB with the emphasis on key areas such as the real living wage, developing the cooperative economy and recycling money locally.

There will be soup, a sandwich and a festive mince pie, as well as refreshments. Please send a message via the Send Message button on the People, Pits and Politics Page if you would like a free ticket. 

More information to follow very soon. 

Bring your ideas along and be a part of keep local money local.
