Future of the Labour Party

In the weeks following Labour’s General Election defeat, there has been a plethora of analysis of what went wrong. The Party has embarked upon a number of soul-searching activities, including the inquiry led by Margaret Backett and Jon Cruddas’s unofficial investigation. As the conversation turns to what the Party needs to do to win back voters and win in 2020, it is important for the Young Fabians to contribute their unique perspective on what the key issues and actions should be – we need a view of the Future of the Labour Party by the future of the Labour Party (i.e. you!).

To achieve this, the Young Fabians are producing a pamphlet which seeks to harness the ideas and views of the Young Fabians membership through a series of activities and put forward ideas about where the Labour Party must go in the lead up to the 2020 General Election and beyond. This series of activities will include: 
  • An online survey - available here https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2TK9HQ3
  • An interactive listening event in late-July
  • The production of a Young Fabians Pamphlet on 'The Future of the Labour Party'
  • A launch at Conference with a further opportunity to share your views
 
The first step in this process is your contribution to the survey and the listening campaign, which will feed directly into the pamphlet. You can find the online survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2TK9HQ3
The questions include:
  1. What must the Labour Party do to win the General Election in 2020?
  2. What type of leader does Labour need to win the General Election in 2020?
  3. What must activists and organisers do to win the General Election in 2020?
  4. Any other thoughts
We look forward to hearing from you on this very important topic! 
 
Thank you for participating in this listening campaign.
