The third National Conference for Men & Boys is to be held in Brighton, 26 – 29 September. It’s the UK’s biggest gathering of people committed to improving the lives of men and boys. Link to the Conference website here:
The Conference’s lead host is the prominent men’s rights activist Glen Poole firstname.lastname@example.org. Glen runs the consultancy ‘Helping Men’ http://helpingmenblog.blogspot.co.uk and he’s also the UK coordinator for International Men’s Day, which will be held on November 19. Glen’s kindly invited me to contribute to the first day of the Conference, the ‘Thinking Men’ gathering. Details of that day are here:
From the start of the page:
This year’s Conference includes our first ever ‘Thinking Men’ gathering. We’re bringing together some of the UK’s leading thinkers on men’s issues to explore what we have in common, where we think differently, and how we can work together more effectively in the future.
Glen has emailed me the following:
Themes (depending on the final mix of delegates) in the morning are likely to included men’s physical health, men’s mental health, fatherhood, crime and violence, and education. The afternoon’s themes will include questions like, ‘How do we put men’s issues on the political agenda?’
Tickets for one or more days of the Conference can be ordered through the link below. ‘Early Bird’ prices of £40.00 per day apply up to 3 August (the subsequent standard price will, I understand, be £80.00 per day):
I look forward to the Conference, and hopefully I’ll be able to meet some of you on 26 September. I urge you to attend at least one day at THE leading event in the British men’s and boys’ welfare calendar. Thank you.
