CTRLshift: AN EMERGENCY SUMMIT FOR CHANGE – 27-29 MARCH 2018

CTRL shift Pulse Logo

                                            . . .

HELP SHAPE A POSITIVE FUTURE FOR BRITAIN

Join activists, organisers, commoners, and entrepreneurs to develop a shared agenda for shifting power over our democracy, economy and environment, from Westminster and multinational corporations, to people and communities across Britain.

Another Britain already exists

Individuals, organisations and networks are already creating a future that’s more inclusive, collaborative, and aims to benefit everyone. Affordable and sustainable housing, local food, renewable energy, emergent political systems, sustainable transport, and alternative finance systems are already out there.

But we lack voice and coordination

Many of us working for a more inclusive and sustainable future share a set of values, and we’re working towards similar goals, but our work is fragmented. We struggle to work across identities of class, colour, culture, nationality, gender, politics and religion, even where we share the same aspirations for the future.

This is a time of turmoil and change

The probable departure from the European Union and its aftermath will be difficult for all of us, and yet, at the same time, offers a unique chance to shape and influence the creation and direction of policy in the United Kingdom. Let’s make our collective voice heard and put our alternatives at the heart of the national agenda.

Let’s create a positive post-Brexit future

  The best way to effect change is to bring together those working to reform the system with those actively building practical radical alternatives. By shifting power from Westminster and multinational corporations to people and communities across Britain, we can make ‘taking back control’ a positive reality.
