Venue: Common House

Organiser: IOPS London

The International Organization for a Participatory Society (IOPS) is a revolutionary organization that aims to win a better world. Sofa Gradin researches anticapitalist alternative trade and teaches Politics. Caragh Iles is interested in alternative economics. Robert Bennie is a South African born resident of London.

Can we build a new society? IOPS London presents ideas around building a new society that cares for all it members and the environment outside of capitalism. There will be short presentations on prefigurativism, participatory economics or Parecon, social ecology and the South African housing movement Abahlali baseMjondolo. We will then break into groups and discuss these things.

We have said it will take 2 hours so there is time for putting chairs back properly and allow for a little lingering. We are quite flexible with the time and date though if its to be in the week it needs to be at night because of working commitments ! Thanks!
