There my also be an event in December, but our normal venue will not be available on 13th.
The topic for the first meeting on 20th September will be Syria – an email will be sent to you shortly with all the details.
We have not settled on topics for the rest of the season. A few of us met recently to think about some subjects and there were plenty of ideas (see below), but firstly we would like to give an opportunity to all Friday Room members to make suggestions and comments! Please add your suggestions and ideas to the comments box below, or if you are reading this in an email click here.
Some specific ideas, or themes on which to base topics are:
- Pluralism and the Compass Open Tribe interviews
- Deliberative democracy
- Fourth wave of feminism
- Premature sexualisation of children based on an NSPCC report
- UK Energy policy
- The vocabulary of politics
- All the political isms (conservatism, marxism, liberalism, socialism, ecologism, anarchism)
- Left Unity – what will a new party on the left mean
The next planning meeting will be Monday 16 the September in the Swan in
the Rushes at 8:00 pm. This is open to any Friday Roomers interested in
setting up this exciting programme.
