People, Planet, Power: Towards a New Social Settlement

Council Room, One Great George Street, London SW1P 3AA

Tuesday 17 February 2015, 08:30 – 11:00 am

Starting promptly at 09:00, with breakfast served from 08.30.

 

Dear all

 

Please join us for the launch of a major new NEF report, People, Planet, Power: towards a new social settlement.  

 

This important report sets out NEF’s proposals for a new social settlement – a framework for deciding how we live together, what we expect from our governments and what we want to achieve for ourselves and others.  It builds on the strengths of the post-war settlement inspired by the Beveridge Plan, but moves on – because the world has changed profoundly - to offer a bold new approach to the challenges we face today.

 

The settlement has three goals: social justice, environmental sustainability and a more equal distribution of power; and it has a set of objectives that highlight crucial issues which feature too seldom in mainstream policy discussions:

  • Plan for prosperity without depending on economic growth. 
  • Shift investment and action upstream to prevent harm instead of just coping with the consequences. 
  • Value and strengthen the core economy of unpaid work and everyday wisdom on which all our lives depend. 
  • Foster solidarity, understanding just how much we depend on each other to achieve our goals. 

These goals and objectives lead to practical proposals for rebalancing work and time, releasing human resources in the ‘core economy’, strengthening social security and planning for a sustainable future.  Our proposals are part of NEF’s work to build a new economics that serves the interests of people and the planet, not the other way around (as at present). This is not a new ‘Beveridge Report’, but NEF’s contribution to current debates about what kind of society we want for the future.  Our aim is to encourage fresh thinking and stimulate debate.

 

Please join us to discuss the report on Tuesday 17th February at One Great George Street. Breakfast will be served at 08:30 followed by a presentation of the report by Anna and an open discussion; with other speakers to be confirmed shortly.
