I'm a Professor at University College London, have active roles with Demos Helsinki and the New Institute in Hamburg, and work with various national governments, foundations and businesses. Recently, I've been developing ideas on shared intelligence, wisdom, science policy, social science, imagination and systems - and have been heavily involved in pandemic responses, and help lead the International Public Policy Observatory (IPPO) focused on COVID-19.
My latest book - 'Another World is Possible' - on reviving social and political imagination - comes out in June 2022.
Over the years I have had many roles - as a CEO, social entrepreneur, policy-maker and author, working at different times in civil society, government, technology and academia, and hopefully gaining a good perspective on how the world works and how it can be changed for the better.
This website brings together writings, ideas, videos and other materials. I hope you find it interesting and useful.
