Our events bring together the brightest minds and most influential voices from across the political spectrum, civil society, business and the economy.


We currently host two networks which meet monthly hosting high level speakers: 


The Public Services 2030 Network is a movement of organisations and individuals committed to rebuilding and reforming our public services so they are fit for the next decade. 


The Good Web Network is a community spanning government, industry and civil society, collaborating to build a better internet. Together, our network will better understand how we can build an internet that strengthens, rather than threatens, our democracy and our digital rights.
