After the 2008 financial crash, we let our government bail out the banks and make citizens pay. During World War 2 a consensus was formed for a new social settlement: the NHS, National Insurance, council housing and a new national order based on cooperation, human rights and an international rules-based system. It had faults but was much better than before. Now we must create a social & political movement for Britain after Covid.
This will not be easy. We need to think harder about what we want, how to work together and how to influence people with power - as well as use what power we have as citizens to change things. This is an open invitation to make suggestions, connect initiatives across the country, and create an unstoppable movement to change Britain for good.
We created this site to facilitate debate, make connections with others developing ideas and initiatives that will make Britain better. Please join the conversation and share your thoughts. Contribute to creating the momentum essential for change
