This week, the 2012 National Conversation goes live on the topic: ‘is the welfare state still fit for purpose?’
Tomorrow, we meet the press and our supporters in London to launch the campaign. In the evening its the first National Conversation Moot (an online conversation, using Google Hangouts video conferencing, hosted by Mick Fealty).
Then we’re off to York for Building the Conversation (tackling political topics with Lego Serious Play) and the York Conversation, hosted by Claire Fox from the Battle of Ideas.
We want these activities to inspire people to start talking about politics, and share their views on the future of welfare. And we believe a key way to do this is via other blogs.
So we’re delighted to see the National Conversation is getting people talking, even before it officially launches (see The Guardian‘s The Northerner Blog).
