We believe the dynamism of our economy and creativity of our culture depends on our country remaining open to people, trade and ideas from across the globe. That improvements in people’s lives will come from harnessing the great potential of global partnerships and that the current drift towards nativism and narrow nationalism represents a huge threat to the very people it professes to serve.
We seek to educate and help people appreciate the benefits of international openness. We also want to understand the genuine issues that stand in the way of realising these benefits and to develop solutions that help smooth the path to our collective global future. We explore new ways for people to take more control over what matters most in their lives without cutting themselves off from opportunities to succeed in our global world.
We work across politics, the arts and in business to make sure Britain’s unique character as a country of tolerance and diversity is not undermined by short-term thinking that would make us a narrower and lesser nation. We are also committed to helping our businesses develop the leadership and culture to help them succeed on the world stage. In addition, we are active in ensuring that Britain’s artists and creative industries benefit from open cultural exchange and the free flow of global talent.
