Part film essay, part documentary THE PLAN tells the untold story of how a group of British weapons engineers switched to designing hybrid engines and wind turbines and were nominated for the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. At a time when climate injustice is fanning the flames of inequality THE PLAN looks at how this group of eco-pioneering aerospace engineers took control for the sake of the planet. Their heroism has been forgotten but as constant wars and climate crisis proliferate there's vital lessons to be learnt from their story 

Premiered at the London Film Festival and nominated for the Grierson Award THE PLAN is being screened at launch events in 6 cities on 1st March followed by a UK wide tour

"This film captures a unique moment in our history - highly skilled workers showing how to turn swords into ploughshares. If we want to transform society, this is a good place to start." Ken Loach

"An urgent and gripping piece of work, reflecting on the dark consequences of capitalism on society and proposing an encouraging alternative for a troubling present." London Film Festival

TUC Congress House, 23-28 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS
#WidenWindrush Campaign is a legal and political campaign to win an amendment to the Windrush Scheme. Currently the descendants and family members of the Windrush Generation – those who came after 1973 & 1988 are excluded from using the Windrush Taskforce (who operate the Windrush Scheme) to regularise their stay. This is because of the racism encoded in British Immigration legislation of 1968, 1971 and 1981.
Guest speakers:
* Antonia Bright, Movement for Justice Campaign Coordinator
* Declan Owens, Solicitor at Thompsons Solicitors
* Grace Brown, Barrister at Garden Court
