We Imagine Better

A manifesto for a shared vision between politicians and civil society to create long-term change for a better future.

Ahead of the December 2019 General Election, we published a manifesto asking that those elected to serve in government root their work in seven values: equity, opportunity, safety, community, love, dignity and sustainability.

“We Imagine Better” calls for every prospective MP to be accountable and transparent, publishing details of how they could 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 rather than focusing on short term plans which can only be designed and implemented within an election cycle.

Download the manifesto here. You can also download and print a one-page pledge and ask your local candidate to sign.

To accompany our #WeImagineBetter manifesto, we asked some of our members what are their vision for a better society, why is the current system not working for so many people and what kind of leadership they would like to see from our elected officials – this is what they have to say!

We represent our members' interests in five key policy areas
