The Common Platform: an inquiry into a good society


The Common Platform will build a shared vision, programme and set of alliances for a good society; one that is much more equal, sustainable and democratic. Crucially, it will combine emerging new practice in civil society and the social economy with creative ideas and policy thinking to build the foundations for social and economic transformation.


The Common Platform will start small but purposefully grow much bigger as a generative space combining vision, ideas, theories and practices of change. Critically, it will work off and with emerging small-scale innovations in civil society and the social economy that are already prefiguring this good society. Ultimately, its goal will be to bring together all these elements, alongside crucial state actors and resources, to bring about the social transformation we need.
