As some of you may be aware, I have been working with a group in Birmingham to develop some positive principles as alternatives to the current underlying principles that seem to be based on neoliberal principles.
We are having a launch for the principles on 14 March 2017, 7pm-9pm at BVSC, 138 Digbeth, Birmingham B5 6DR.
The principles are:
Enabling Potential: Everyone has an equal opportunity to develop their full individual potential
Equal Society: Everyone is included and our basic human needs are provided for
Participatory Democracy: Everyone’s voice is heard and every vote counts equally
Environmental Sustainability: Everyone feels our local environment is our home, and the planet is preserved for our children and grandchildren
An Economy for the Common Good: Everyone’s needs are supported through regulated and responsible markets with mixed ownership models and by fostering local economies
For the full report and further information click here (
It would be fantastic to hear what you think of the 5 Progressive Principles. A quick survey has been set up here ( and it would be wonderful if you could take a look - it only take a couple of minutes.
