What's on

Join the conversation

We convene and connect original thinkers and innovators, seeking to catalyse progressive partnerships. We bring together people from every background – science, politics, business, the arts and more. We ask “What matters? What do we need know? What is going on out there that Westminster politics has ignored?” We probe the pressing problems, looking at them from different angles. And most importantly, we want to find out what the solutions look like – and how we all can do something about it

Our digital events

Join us at our regular digital events where Friends and supporters come together to explore the most pressing issues we face today. Our digital events are free to join and you can watch replays of all our past events here. Attendees are encouraged to join the conversation, by sharing thoughts, ideas, questions and comments with our expert speakers.

Live events

When it is safe to meet we will be hosting a range of live festivals, seminars and gatherings around the country where we will bring together local and national audiences to join with expert thinkers, political minds, campaigning organisations and champions to to creating space for non-partisan conversations about big policy issues and to giving a voice to places and people left-behind, particularly focussed on regeneration.

What motivates them? Why did they decide to do what they do? What are the most memorable and surprising situations they have found themselves in? The answers are often unexpected.
