What people say about NEON

Gary Younge, Journalist and Editor At Large, The Guardian

“This project is essential. Both for coming up with a new story on the economy but also because, for once, it’s putting the best people in the same room to start actually working together.”

Gary Younge, Journalist and Editor At Large, The Guardian
David Braniff Herbert, Senior Trade Union Organiser, National Union of Teachers

“Helped me change my entire approach to Organising, Campaigning and Leadership. NEON offers a space that doesn’t exist anywhere else, it brings together every colour of the left and offers a chance for us to breath, reflect, find common ground and skill up so that the progressive can and will win”

David Braniff Herbert, Senior Trade Union Organiser, National Union of Teachers
Penny Wangari-Jones, Racial Justice Network

“The best thing anyone serious about creating and making change could do. The mix of people, energy, atmosphere, the knowledge and skills in one room would beat any higher education facility … hands down!”

Penny Wangari-Jones, Racial Justice Network
Clive Lewis MP

“Going on the NEON economics training was like an epiphany – I suddenly saw how everything fit together. NEON has provided a crucial space for me to meet, debate and work with activists across a range of movements”

Clive Lewis MP
Faiza Shaheen, Director of Centre for Labour and Social Studies

“The media training was some of the best training I’ve ever had, allowing me to hone the craft of media interviews and giving me much more confidence. Most importantly, the emphasis on simple messages and how to best frame arguments has increased my communications skills dramatically. They’ve got me gigs that I’d never be able to get on my own.”

Faiza Shaheen, Director of Centre for Labour and Social Studies
Nicolò Wojewoda, Europe Team Leader 350.org

“NEON is the anchor our progressive movements need right now. Rather than doubling down on our work and seeking a greater impact by raising our voice even louder, it has invited us to stop and reflect on how we communicate with our audiences and how we frame our messages; on who we work with and what makes for healthy (and unhealthy) power dynamics in those relationships. It’s a wide-ranging long-term resource for the work we do, and a precious community to be part of.”

Nicolò Wojewoda, Europe Team Leader 350.org
Fran Boait, Director, Positive Money

“NEON has been transformational to my learning and development allowing me to develop my leadership, strategy and ability to build Positive Money from a small group into a thriving 8 person pressure group on the national stage”

Fran Boait, Director, Positive Money
Susan Treadwell, Deputy Director, Open Society Initiative for Europe

“Nothing short of transformational in helping me to view my work as part of a much larger struggle for systems change for social, economic, and environmental justice. What I have learned from the amazing trainers and participants alike has empowered me to be a better leader and ally.”

Susan Treadwell, Deputy Director, Open Society Initiative for Europe
Zahra Dalilah, Take Back the City and Freelance journalist

“The media spokesperson training was a fantastic exercise not just in building the confidence and gaining the essential skills to step in front of the media and get your message heard and spread, but also a really beautiful space for building connections with fellow campaigners and creating a community of mutual support for progressive thinkers who are getting their voices out there.”
