I'm a Professor at University College London and work on making ideas become real, with various national governments, NGOs, foundations and businesses. Recently, I've been developing ideas on shared intelligence, wisdom, science policy, social science, imagination and systems. I 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 - came out in the summer of 2022 - and is sparking fantastic conversations, projects and reviews.
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.
