The Alternative UK

The Alternative UK will explore how we can remodel our political systems in two debate sessions. The Alternative UK is a new political platform that seeks to answer the question, If politics is broken, what’s the alternative?​

Only 2% of people are members of political parties in the UK - even after the Corbyn phenomenon – which means that only 2% of people are participating in the story of power that gets covered by the mainstream media. Can we re-imagine politics in a way that is relevant and attractive to the 98%? That also integrates the needs of the I, the We and the World? Alternative UK does three things 1) Publish a Daily Alternative of socio-political initiatives from outside of the political bubble. 2) Actively stitch together the many national and global networks working in the field of alternatives. 3) Run community collaboratories accross the UK, using the power of the arts and facilitation to help foster local autonomy, meaning and purpose.
