Netroots UK 2012

Saturday 30 June, Congress Centre, Great Russell St, London, WC1B 3LS

Netroots UK is an annual one-day event like no other in the UK for the progressive left. 

Our aim? To help network and inspire activists across the country using the internet through a mixture of debates, strategy sessions and training workshops.

  • Hear from innovative and effective campaigns in other fields.
  • Make useful contacts with key people and organisations.
  • Get practical training in digital techniques and technologies.
  • Take part in the debate on the future of UK activism.

This year we’ll have a special focus on continuing NHS campaigning, activism against the cuts, and mapping the impact of the NHS bill.
