This project will start with a small question, 'How can I work differently?' and end up with a much bigger one, 'How can working differently change the world?'
Being busy isn't an Identity
Perks aren't office Culture
Profit isn't all we want from Business
Loneliness shouldn't happen in a Community
Inequality isn't inevitable in a City
We can all shape Society
From the award-winning author and Financial Times columnist Elizabeth Uviebinene, a fundamental rethink of how we work and live. Because if we're going to really benefit from the radical shift of 2020, we have to rethink how we fit into an ecosystem. If we rethink how we fit in, everything resets around us - the work culture we exist in, the businesses we work for, the communities we're a part of, the cities we live in and the society we shape. We can't just rethink one strand of society; we need to rethink everything together. It's time for a Reset.
Full of progressive thinking, and original interviews from Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and Nadia Whittome MP, Founder of Mother Pukka: Anna Whitehouse, Channel 4 CEO Alex Mahon, and many others, The Reset is optimistic, positive and provocative, offering fresh perspectives on the way we live now, and a punchy idea for how we might live in the future.
