Fabian summer conference 2017: Path to Power

Kings College London Waterloo Campus

Event starts:

Saturday 8 July 2017, 9.30am-5.30pm | Franklin-Wilkins Building, Kings College London Waterloo Campus, Stamford Street, London SE1 9NH

Taking place exactly one month after the election this conference will provide a space for crucial discussion and debate about the future direction of the left.
Against the odds Labour increased its vote share and made wining the next election a real possibility. Now there is a clear path to power. As such, this year’s Fabian summer conference will ask what can Labour do to win the next election? consolidate its new coalition of voters? expand further in Scotland? shape Brexit? build a plan for the next Labour government? The conference will also look at Labour in power in local government and devolved authorities as well as looking wider at a revival of progressive politics across Europe.

Announced speakers:

Kate Green MP (Stretford & Urmston & Fabian Society chair), Alison McGovern MP (Wirral South), Lisa Nandy MP (Wigan),  Mary Honeyball MEP (London), Anas Sarwar MSP (Glasgow), Jeremy Miles AM (Neath), Mayor Robin Wales (Newham), Cllr Bev Craig (executive member for adult services, Manchester City Council), Richard Angell (director, Progress), Emma Bean (LabourList), Jasmin Beckett (Labour NEC), Torsten Bell (director, Resolution Foundation), Stephen Bush (special correspondent, New Statesman), Giacomo Filibeck (deputy secretary general, PES), Maya Goodfellow (commentator), Owen Jones (columnist, Guardian), Deborah Mattinson (founder, Britain Thinks), Mariana Mazzucato (economics professor, UCL), Ania Skrzypek (senior research fellow, FEPS), Ernst Stetter (secretary general, FEPS), Abi Wilkinson (commentator)

There will also be small group-discussions throughout the day, so you will have the opportunity to debate ideas with senior figures from across the Labour movement and beyond.
