About The SANE Collective: The Nitty Gritty of the City

Can Glasgow be a site for transformative action?
Can we create an economic space for people not for profit?
Can we end the neo-liberal market-driven plans that have gentrified and socially cleansed parts of Glasgow with little impact on inequality and poverty?
Do we want a “world class city” or do we want a just city?
Do we want a “smart city” or a healthy city?
Can phrases like “circular economy” and “participatory budgeting” have meaning or do they perpetuate poverty, austerity, precarity and oppression?

There are other experiments in radical municipal movement building which can guide us. Across Glasgow, movements are fighting in specific areas – housing, transport, education, women’s rights, employment rights and more. A social movement of existing social movements in Glasgow could bring them together without undermining existing campaigns.

Our hope for the event is to reach a consensus on a structure for the movement, the process for building it and learning from both successes and mistakes, how it relates and amplifies existing campaigns and how it reaches all parts of the city.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The SANE Collective: The Nitty Gritty of the City are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
