Bringing together campaigners and historians, this innovative conference explores how and why change occurred in the past and what civil society groups seeking to shape society today can learn from history. This event is part of H&P's collaboration with Friends of the Earth as the organisation plans its campaign strategy for the years ahead. A few places remain, with optional fees.
Date: Wednesday 3 June 2015, 9am-5pm, with a drinks reception, 5-6pm
Organisers: Paul Readman (King’s College London), Lucy Delap (Cambridge), Simon Szreter (Cambridge), Mike Childs (Friends of the Earth)
