Larger Us works to support a new kind of change-maker: one who works towards a shift from ‘them-and-us’ to a ‘larger us’ world.
We do this by working with people who want to change the world for the better - at every level from neighbourhoods to nations - to help them understand more about the links between psychology and politics.
The approach to change-making that we champion involves:
We believe that how we go about making change in the world really matters. All too often change-makers become caught up in the polarisation game themselves, firing up their supporters against a shadowy enemy who must be defeated at all costs.
Larger Us offers new ways for change-makers to think about their work by asking them to consider five questions:
Alongside these questions we invite change-makers to consider how their own personal states of mind impact the way they create change.
Our core activities are sharing our ideas through research, our podcast and newsletter; delivering our training programme for change-makers; and bringing people together in events to discuss the key issues around larger us change-making.
