Over the weekend, Reset – a ground-breaking initiative co-chaired by Caroline Lucas MP and myself – was launched.
Reset’s aim is to bring people and politicians together, to reflect on the crisis we’ve just been through and share what we’ve learnt. A national survey will offer the public a chance to share their views on a wide range of issues – from the value of key workers and the urgent action needed on climate change, to secure housing and rethinking the nature of work. We’ll deliver our findings to parliament and government this autumn.
We have all had to make significant and rapid changes in our lives because of lockdown. We’ve seen people from all kinds of backgrounds unify and a nationwide swell of compassion and awareness of how precarious life can sometimes be.
Now we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to set our communities and country on the road to a sustainable and fair future that protects people and our planet. That’s why we want to hear everyone’s ideas about the way they want things in Britain to change so we can all contribute to the policies we need to take us to a brighter future, and I’m really keen to make sure that people in Norwich are at the heart of that conversation.
