Demos is a champion of people, ideas, and democracy. They bring people together. They bridge divides. They listen and they understand. They are practical about the problems they face, but endlessly optimistic and ambitious about their capacity, together, to overcome them. At a crossroads in Britain’s history, they need ideas for renewal, reconnection and the restoration of hope. Challenges from populism to climate change remain unsolved, and a technological revolution dawns, but the centre of politics has been intellectually paralysed. Demos will change that. They can counter the impossible promises of the political extremes, and challenge despair – by bringing to life an aspirational narrative about the future of Britain that is rooted in the hopes and ambitions of people from across their country.
