Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Something remarkable is happening in the UK. The Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn is articulating an economic platform grounded in “alternative models of ownership” that outlines what an economy that works for the many, not the few, could look like. Come watch the premier of independent journalist Laura Flanders’ (of The Laura Flanders Show) new video documentary telling this powerful story, followed by conversations with the Next System Project’s European Representative and a leader from Cooperation Buffalo who will discuss what lessons the US Left can learn about how a popular economic agenda can be built from the bottom up.
