WHO ARE WE?
We are Promoting Economic Pluralism – a registered charity number 1178596 – working closely with this network of organisations. We have done this because we think the common issue in all the areas the different network members work is how we think about and organise the economy. We believe that by coming together and facilitating diverse and innovative economic thinking we can develop a coherent approach to designing a fairer, more sustainable and resilient economic system.
GET INVOLVED WITH DRIVING REFORM
Please do not leave this to the experts. It is too important for that. Come along and discuss these issues. We also need your financial support to involve as wide a cross-section of the UK population to make this a truly inclusive process. So please donate as much as possible to sponsor those less able to afford involvement.
