Each year, Demos curates a series of high profile, impactful events across the party conference season.
In 2018 we had significant presence at Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat conferences, where we opened a space to ask the big questions about where Britain might go next at this critical juncture in our history. Demos curated 22 events across three conferences with speaker highlights including:
The Rt. Hon. Michael Gove MP;
The Rt. Hon. Sir Edward Davey MP;
The Rt. Hon. Yvette Cooper MP;
Lord Andrew Adonis;
Iain Martin, Times columnist;
Stephen Bush from the New Statesman; and
Bobby Duffy, Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Policy Institute at King’s College London.
In 2019 we’ll be taking the conversation further; looking at the opportunities and challenges facing Britain in the coming years and how we can best prepare for them. We will bring ideas for renewal, reconnection and the restoration of hope.
With pressing challenges from populism to climate change continuing and a technological revolution dawning, in 2019 we are working to bring to life an aspirational narrative about the future of Britain that is rooted in the hopes and ambitions of people from across our country.
These vital conversations would not be possible without our partners and we are looking for organisations who want to start addressing and preparing for the challenges of the future before they become the problems of today.
