Building a New Vision
Devising effective and responsive solutions
We’re launching an innovative and exciting policy development process to devise creative and far-reaching responses to age-old problems. It’s based on our values, ideas direct from the public, and the latest research and best practise.
We are learning from their real life stories so we can focus attention on solving real problems, not issues imagined by a disconnected political elite.
We are feeding their ideas into policy committees and putting our heads together with the best minds in Britain and abroad to find new solutions that better serve our national aspirations.
This will take time but we’re working round the clock to shape a new positive vision for the future. Take the journey with us.
Despite strong employment levels, our economy has not been improving living standards across the country. This is due mainly to poor productivity and long-term economic uncertainty. Renew will look at ways to drive UK innovation and entrepreneurship through investing in the facilities to support business, as well as introducing key reforms.
Inequalities and differences between regions, salary levels, and generations are stark. While globalisation and free trade have boosted our economy and created opportunities for many, the costs and benefits have not been evenly distributed. Many have debts or feel robbed of opportunity. Productivity gains through technological advances have disproportionately rewarded the wealthiest in society. We must rebalance our economy through radical structural reforms, innovative investment and targeted support for the poorest in our society. Everyone has a contribution to make; we will work with our communities to improve the lives of all.
Man-made climate change, air pollution, falling biodiversity and bacterial resistance present significant threats to our health and the environment. We must find urgent solutions with our partners using the latest research and technology, mobilising business and activating the public to change their habits – thus relieving pressure on the environment for future generations.
The decisions of past governments combined with economic underperformance and social inequalities are straining our public services. When they fail, it is the poorest and most vulnerable who suffer the most. Public services require more investment, reform and reduced bureaucracy, to ensure we have well-supported staff and properly funded, fit-for-purpose services on which we can all rely.
Britain has enjoyed substantial soft power and global influence in recent years due to active diplomacy, culture, education and targeted aid, supported by distinctive branding and communications. Britain risks becoming less influential because of Brexit and geopolitical changes. This will affect our ability to project smart power, threatening UK interests around the world and representing lost opportunities. We must re-engage so that the UK is restored as a respected, responsible nation contributing to the common good.
