  • Power and Accountability – to support people to create a world in which power is more equally shared, and in which powerful institutions are responsive and accountable to wider society and aligned with the long-term public interest.
  • Rights and Justice – to promote racial justice and equality of opportunity as a basis for a harmonious multi-racial, multi-ethnic society in the UK.
  • Sustainable Future – to develop and promote sustainable, low-carbon alternatives to the current consumerist and growth-based paradigm.
