The Young Fabians are the under-31′s section of the Fabian Society, Britain’s senior centre-left think tank. Set up in 1960, we remain the only think tank run by and for young people. We are affiliated to the Labour Party and have formal representation on the Young Labour National Committee.
Our Membership numbers over 1,500 and includes young professional, students, parlimentary researchers, political activists and academics. All the young MPs elected at the 1997 and 2001 elections were Young Fabians and, during those parliaments, there were more Fabian MPs than Tory MPs.
The Young Fabians develop policy ideas through seminars, conferences and pamphlets. We produce a quarterly magazine, Anticipations, and organise regular political and social events. We seek to encourage debate and political education amongst our members and within the wider Labour movement.
The Young Fabian executive is made up of 17 members. For more information about the other executive members have a look on the Contact Us page.
The Fabian Society has played a central role for more than a century in the development of political ideas and public policy on the left of centre.
