Power/Knowledge Exchange

Knowledge exchange is important for the mission of universities.

Through the lens of community organising, we help build power to make univeristies and communities the place it should be. Supported by a local network and tools, you can write what happens next, and achieve more for young people. Through the building of collective institutional power in places, we can win change that we're unable to achieve by ourselves. Citizens UK's Power/KE project sees universities as important to this mission.

Power Knowledge Exchange - Communities of Practice

After a conference with 120 HE leaders from 35 universities hosted by QMUL in January 2023, we are actively supporting four HEI communities of practice.

  1. Community Organising and the Civic University agenda
  2. Universities and a real Living Wage
  3. Curriculum development through Community Organising
  4. Student Unions and Broad-Based Organising
Higher Education conference

Higher Education Conference: Universities as Civic Actors and Agents of Social Justice

The renewed focus on a university’s civic obligations to its immediate geographical community opens up the possibility of rethinking the public role of universities. This includes the prospect of universities engaging much more directly in social justice work with other local civic partners.

Our conference on Wednesday 5 June, 9:30am-5pm, will explore how universities can use broad-based organising to win change.
