Autonomy at the World Transformed festival
We really enjoyed the third iteration of the World World Transformed festival. As with previous years, the debate was vibrant, the audience participation was strong and the lineup of speakers and groups was impressive.
We were incredibly proud to see packed audiences for each of our panels (even though two of them were simultaneous with John McDonnell speaking elsewhere!) Thank you very much to everyone who attended and contributed to the conversations.
Below you’ll find some photos of the panels. Thanks to all involved.
'Cybernetic socialism' panel (Monday 24th Sept)
'4 day week: the time is now!' panel (Tuesday 25th Sept)
Ed Miliband's 'policy dragon's den' (Tuesday 25th Sept)
An IPPR event
As a final bit of fun, co-director Will Stronge took part in a ‘policy dragon’s den’, hosted by IPPR.
Each panelist must pitch a policy idea to the audience and to our chair, Ed Miliband. The audience would then vote on their favourite policy.
Despite heavy competition from ideas such as democratising the media, introducing the teaching of British Empire into school curriculums and extending paternity leave, a shorter working week policy won the popular vote!
Thanks to IPPR and Ed Miliband for the event.
