Global Justice Now goes to the European Summer Uni | Université Toulouse - Jean Jaurès | mardi, 22. août 2017


Join Global Justice Now as we travel to Toulouse for the European Summer University for Social Movements (ESU). The ESU is a unique gathering of over 1000 people for five days to explore big issues, share ideas and experiences and build the global movement against racism, corporate power and climate injustice. More info at esu2017.org

The ESU is organised by Attac – an international network of activists fighting for democratic, ecological alternatives to our current system. Global Justice Now is the Attac group in the UK.

A group of us will be travelling together from London in the morning of Tuesday 22 August and getting back to London in the evening of Tuesday 29 August. Join us for an amazing trip!

Exact details, including booking options, will be confirmed soon.


The ESU will bring together some of the most dynamic and interesting campaigners, activists and writers in Europe. Over five days there will be debates, introductory talks, workshops and discussions on a huge range of issues, including:

• fascism, populism and the rise of the far right
• refugee rights and migrant solidarity
• the power of finance capitalism
• fighting for climate justice in the 21st century
• the future of Europe
• alternatives to capitalism and neoliberalism
• devising high-impact creative actions
• building social movements in a time of crisis

That’s just a taste. There will be lots, lots more, including a strand of events run by and for young people. And as well as debate and discussion, the ESU is also about celebration and building community. There will also be an extensive cultural programme as part of the event, with live music, theatre, film screenings and more.

The programme for the ESU is still in development and more details will be announced. To get more information, check out the official website for the event: . We will also post updates here.


To help young people participate in the ESU, Global Justice Now is offering a major subsidy for 16 young people (aged 18-27). For train travel and accommodation for the event you’ll just need to pay £50.

To secure your subsidised place, phone the Global Justice Now office on 0207 820 4900 and make a card payment.

We will take bookings on a first-come-first-served basis, so book early. We are hoping to close the bookings for subsidised youth places by 31 May, so definitely book by then!


If you’re not sure and want more information, we’re happy to chat over email or talk to you about it in person. Just reply to me by email or give us a call on 02078204900 and ask to speak to Ed, Sam or James.
  • Is there anyone who wants to join me travelling from the cote d azur area/ south france (I'm in frejus at the moment and I will start today) to Toulouse ? I would prefer walking / hiking and sometimes taking the train to be ready there when university starts. My courses are on Friday /Saturday but I wouldn't mind arriving there a bit earlier. Write me a message or give me a call (00436767390165). See you !
