10 digital organising sessions at #Organise2020

Organise 2020 is the TUC’s free online festival of ideas in union organising, taking place from 9-11 July 2020. And TUC Digital will be joining in too.

Effective union organising has to include an awareness of the possibilities of digital. From online campaigns that can mobilise thousands, to the individual connections and conversations that inspire people to leadership, and the data that helps us to understand what’s working and what isn’t.

Organise 2020 will have a strong focus on digital organising, with 10 sessions focusing specifically on digital topics over the three days. Check them out below – they’re a mix of practical training webinars, case studies and debates about some of the big challenges for unions in this area.

All sessions are free to join, but places are limited and you’ll need to book up to join them on the day, so get your reservations in now. We look forward to seeing you online at Organise 2020!
