transform! europe's observer organisation The World Transformed (TWT) hosts an annual festival of politics, arts and music. TWT aims to create spaces for debate and exchange between grassroot activists, politicians, community groups, unionists and interested persons to address social movement’s most pressing issues.
The World Transformed is a political education project that emerged out of the movement around Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the British Labour Party.

TWT's vision of political education has been guided by the following principles:
