Good news: the solutions to our problems already exist.
Great news: a once-in-a-generation appetite for change means we can enact them.
The challenges we face are daunting, but in GO BIG Ed Miliband shows us that the scale of what is possible is far greater. We are at a rare moment in history when people everywhere see the need for big change. Meanwhile, practical and proven schemes abound for tackling everything from inequality to the climate crisis – if you know where to look and have the courage to think big.
Ed Miliband has captured the progressive imagination in his award-winning hit podcast Reasons To Be Cheerful, which discovers brilliant people all around the world who are successfully fixing problems, transforming communities and pioneering global movements. From a citizens’ assembly in Mongolia to the UK’s largest cycle network in Manchester, from flexible working in Finland to the first halal Nando’s in Cardiff, GO BIG draws on the most ingenious and ambitious of these schemes to provide a coherent set of tools with which to remake society.
