But What Can I Do? In conversation with Alastair Campbell

Political Strategist, New European editor-at-large, mental health campaigner and co-host of the country’s Number 1 podcast, The Rest is Politics, Alastair Campbell comes to UCL for a special opening event of the UCL Department of Political Science's Policy & Practice seminar series for 2023-24 in partnership with the European Institute and UCL Policy Lab. 

His new book But What Can I Do? went straight to the top of the Sunday Times best-seller lists. In it, Campbell argues that the next generation has to rescue politics from the populist, post-truth morass into which it has fallen in the era of Trump, Johnson, Brexit and Putin.

This event will explore the hopes and concerns of young people from across UCL and London about engaging in politics and consider how our political system can become more open to their participation.

Facilitated by the brilliant Julia Macfarlane of ABC News and joined on stage by students from UCL. Alastair will explore the challenge laid out in the sub-title of his book: Why Politics Has Gone So Wrong, and How YOU Can Help Fix It.

Copies of Alastair Campbell's new book will be available to buy on the day.
