A common vision for the next generation

How would the future of society, politics and economics be different if they were organised around shared values and the common good?

Our work

Our ideas fall within four strategic programmes: Common Life, Common Work, Common Money and Common Nation.

Common Life


Common Money


Common Nation


Common Work

Common Life

What are the foundations for healthy, resilient communities? What do citizens need to shape the places and spaces in which we live? How do we make the shift from social security to social sustainability?

Common Money

How do we build and assert our economic citizenship over our money and resources? Do we need to redefine our expectations of value, profit and equitable exchange? Can finance evolve beyond individual gain to serve collective wealth?

Common Nation

How do we articulate a positive national identity founded on values we all share? How do we use the benefits of modern life to strengthen our culture and heritage, and our engagement with national and local institutions?

Common Work

By what means can we rediscover agency, creativity and shared purpose in the places where we learn and earn? How is the workplace evolving to reflect different values and expectations across generations? And in what ways can we move past a focus on the economic contribution of work to its social purpose?
