It’s a time of turmoil and change
The probable departure from the EU and it’s aftermath continues to dominate the headlines.
Combined with the threat of imminent climate change and ongoing environmental degradation, growing inequality and deepening divides, this is an increasingly uncertain time.
A better future already exists
Individuals, organisations and networks across the UK are already creating a future that’s more inclusive, collaborative, and aims to benefit everyone.
We share many core values but what we lack is voice and coordination.
We are too often fragmented within our own silos.
Shaping our future together
We are an ecosystem of many parts working to reform the system and build practical alternatives.
Our aim is to shift political, economic and cultural power away from the status quo.
Our purpose is for UK communities to be able to create our futures together.
CTRLshift: An Emergency Summit for Change 2 will take place this year in Stoke on Trent over 8-10 May 2019.
We seek to catalyse a network of change-making organisations, networks and independent practitioners, creating a movement for positive social, economic and environmental change.
We are developing a shared agenda to shift power over our democracy, economy and environment to people and communities across Britain.
Lets get the whole system in the room.

The venue is situated at Spode Works, a pottery factory that forms a key part of Stoke-On-Trent’s industrial heritage, now being redeveloped and reimagined as a hub of the arts and micro-industry. We have chosen Stoke for our second CTRLshift Summit due to both its rich past and its great potential!
