Challenging established notions. Re-imagining our societies
Our goal is a sustainable society where all citizens can live securely with dignity, are active participants in society and are free to pursue their own interpretation of the good life.
We aim to achieve this by re-imagining the way our institutions function by utilizing contemporary ideas and technologies.
We exist to translate this thinking into practical policy solutions. We seek, to help bring the vitality of thinking outside the establishment to bear on the issues we all face.
We are determined to challenge received wisdom. To be provocative enough to shake our institutions out of their complacency. We seek to undermine entrenched interests.
We explore the potential of open-source, participative citizenship that is now possible in a way that it never was in the past. To, re-empower citizens to take charge of their own destinies.
System renewal is at the heart of all we do
We are living in a time of great opportunity, innovation, entrepreneurship and fizzing new ideas. But our political institutions are from a different age; no longer fit for purpose.
Our aim is to draw on these opportunities to re-fashion our political economy to one appropriate for the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century.
Our work focuses on how we can transform the system that makes up our societies and economies to deliver what people living in today's world want and need.
We aim to create policy initiatives that can drive systemic change rather than tweaks to the status quo.
"Ballooning inequality, stagnating living standards, and rising economic insecurity made a mockery of the old style of policy analysis”*.
It need not be so.
The opportunities open to us in this most creative of eras are potentially endless, but we are held back by our political and bureaucratic systems.
By challenging received wisdom and embedded ways of thinking, we drive new approaches to policy making that catalyse system renewal by getting past out-dated ideological divides.
