‘We Imagine Better’ proposes a shared vision between politicians and civil society to create long- term change for a better future.
Today we published “We Imagine Better”: a manifesto asking for future MPs to root their work in seven values: equity, opportunity, safety, community, love, dignity and sustainability.
“We Imagine Better” says that it is political choices that create or maintain unequal systems. It also says that for too long politicians have been preoccupied with the short-term, focused on plans which can be designed and implemented within an election cycle.
The manifesto calls for every prospective MP to publish details of how they would work in partnership with civil society to instigate long-term, ambitious and cross-governmental plans that will enable everyone living and working in the UK to have happy and fulfilling lives.
The manifesto will be followed later this month with a series of short videos on social media platforms in which civil society CEOs share their vision for a better society. Everyone is invited to join the conversation, share their ideas and values in text or video, by using the hashtag #WeImagineBetter.
