We Can Make’ named as ‘New Radical’
For the fourth time Nesta have worked in partnership with The Observer to unearth a group of change-makers doing their thing to create a different, better society.

Every two years, Nesta and the Observer pull together a list of 50 radical thinking organisations and individuals developing creative ways of tackling society’s biggest challenges.

This year’s list, which includes representation from across the UK, was compiled from hundreds of entries and nominations and narrowed down by a panel of judges.

It features some inspiring examples of individuals and organisations working in fields as diverse as health and social care, the creative industries, international aid and education and skills. The final list was launched in the Observer on 16 September.

Why are we doing this?
The New Radicals list is an antidote to the many rankings of the rich, powerful and famous so often presented in the media. We want to highlight and support the people working tirelessly to shape our world for the better, and bring them together to learn from each other.

What are we doing?
Every two years Nesta and the Observer put out a call for nominations and entries for individuals, organisations and initiatives from around the UK developing creative ways of tackling society’s biggest challenges.

A final list of 50 is published in the Observer New Review and on the Nesta website, followed by a celebration event to bring the new and alumni New Radicals together.
