The Common Wealth think tank was set up earlier this year to focus on six systemically vital areas where democratic ownership can transform how our economy operates and for whom.
- Democratising business
- Rewiring finance
- Building a digital commons
- Stewarding the natural commons
- Building a social commons
- Reclaiming land
They have published a Road Map to a Green New Deal which is series of reports charting a way forward.
“Overcoming climate emergency will require more than tinkering. A systems crisis will require a systemic response….. To confront global warming we need radical action and deep systems change. Only a UK Green New Deal can deliver change on the pace and scale required, restructuring our economy toward sustainability, hard-wiring justice into economic and social life, repairing plundered natural systems, building resilience, and decolonising an extractive global economy.
The goal is simple but transformative: a deep and purposeful reorganisation of our economy so that it is democratic, sustainable, and equal by design. Driven by a step-change in public policy and investment, a UK Green New Deal can rescue our collective futures from climate catastrophe and create the conditions for universal human flourishing”.
