CTRLshift: An Emergency Summit for Change – 27-29 March 2018

A more equal society for all
Bringing key people together to make change
Finding alternative ways to shift power
We can rise up stronger if we join together
Time to stand up and be heard


Counting down…

We are in a time of great uncertainty and unfolding crises

The social, economic and environmental failures of the current system are being cruelly exposed by rising inequality, social division, increasingly precarious and insecure employment, loss of biodiversity, accelerating climate change and an increasing number of people unable to meet their basic needs.

Another Britain already exists

Across Britain individuals, organisations and networks are working together to create a future that is inclusive, collaborative, and creates shared benefits. We are creating affordable housing, local food, renewable energy, sustainable transport, and alternative finance systems from the ground up.

But we lack voice and coordination

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

Brexit offers unprecedented opportunities

“The departure from the European Union and its aftermath offers unprecedented opportunities to shape and influence the creation and direction of policy in the United Kingdom. Will our collective voice be heard, or will the alternatives we have developed be ignored?

Help us shape a positive post-Brexit future

We believe 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.
