Politics is the place many of us go to “make a difference”, whether it be joining a political party, getting elected to a representative position, joining an NGO or mobilising our friends in a grassroots movement to create change.

What kind of leadership and influence can we exercise on our political system? How has the capacity of ordinary people to shape political change evolved over time with the rise of online organising, the 24-hour news cycle and a new generation of politicized young people? We’ll hear some hard-won lessons in leadership and influence from our soon to be announced panel members.
