An Open Invitation From The 3rd National Conference for Men and Boys
Do you think differently about men and boys? Have you been drawn to the recent debate about “masculinity in crisis”?
If so we’d like to invite you to take part in the Thinking Men conference in Brighton this September.
The event is part of the Third National Conference for Men and Boys and will bring together some of the UK’s leading thinkers on men’s issues to explore what we have in common, how we think differently and what difference we can make by working together more effectively in the future.
We’re inviting a broad spectrum of academics, policy experts, political thinkers, media commentators, charity leaders, public sector bosses and campaigners on men’s issues to get together to think differently about men and boys.
And if there are people you think should be taking part in this conversation then we’d like you to send us your suggestions.
The day has four key elements:
- A meeting of minds where you get the opportunity to connect with people who think about men’s issues in a similar way to you (eg people who have the same political perspective or values)
- An opportunity to exchange ideas and information on key men’s issues such as boys’ in education, men’s health, male suicide, men and violence, fatherhood etc
- Creative sessions where you can explore new solutions to old problems such as the changing role of men, engaging men in gender issues, making men’s issues a political issue etc
- A time to reflect on the day, consider new opportunities and commit to take action.
We’d love you to get involved in this event so if you’d like to take part in the Thinking Men conference on Thursday 26th September 2013 then why not take action now by:
