In November 2021, ten individuals met in Letchworth to talk about how, together, we can create a compelling narrative for a better world. Do join us if you’re interested.
Towards a better world
Can we imagine a society organised around the principle of flourishing lives rather than material goods? Over the past five years, Rethinking Poverty has brought together discussions about how to create a good and just society. Now we need to bring all the pieces together to create a narrative about what a better world could look like that is compelling enough to bring people together to help create such a world.
Here we set out our thinking and how it has developed over the years, starting with the publication of Barry Knight’s Rethinking Poverty in August 2017 and the first Letchworth retreat a year later.
The climate crisis is the greatest threat facing humanity today. Here, we explore the different ways people are trying to tackle it. What is clear is we can only address it if we also address poverty and inequality.
We identified three key elements in any vision for a good society: the place we want, the state we want, and the business we want. If we have all three, we will have the society we want.
