In a world that is increasingly devastated by austerity, militarism and a looming ecological crisis, millions of young people are looking around for an alternative to the unjust social structures and policies that reign across the globe. In the face of neo-liberal economic policies and increasingly violent and oppressive governments, new movements are rising to challenge the powers that be. However, what is not always clear is that there is a viable alternative to the global economic system, and that alternative is worth struggling for.
Radical Ideas is a conference for young people who are looking to build the politics of an alternative. It is a weekend of discussion and debate on how young people can best organise to build a new politics for radically more democratic, equal and just future. It is a conference for socialist, feminist, environmentalist and anti-racist youth to come together and unite around the issues we care about.
The Radical Ideas conference will be held in Geelong, Victoria from Friday 5th December to Sunday 7th December at the Geelong Trades Hall. 127 Myers Street, Geelong, Victoria, 3220.
On Monday the 8th of December Resistance: Young Socialist Alliance members and invited guests will participate in closed sessions to elect a new leadership of Resistance, skill sharing sessions, and other decision making sessions.
Radical Ideas is hosted by Resistance: Young Socialist Alliance, which is the youth wing of the Socialist Alliance.
