Venue: Learning Resource Centre in the City Clean Depot, Upper Hollingdean Road, Brighton BN1 7GA

Organiser: Free University Brighton

Free University Brighton is a cooperative community-led university run by volunteers. We provide and promote free education for all. We also offer two degree-level courses in social science and philosophy.

People often criticise the way society is, but that leads to the question ‘what’s the alternative?’. This is the first of 4 sessions which will explore alternatives to current types of society. Each session will look at alternatives such as communism, green society and alternative education. This will raise issues to do with utopianism, alternative economies and coops, society with less work and global society with open borders.

This module is part of Free University Brighton’s degree-level course in Social Science and Humanities. It’s free to join and you don’t need to be registered for the degree to attend. However, places are limited so booking is essential.
