An exceptional and timely report

Civil society is on the cusp of remarkable change. In its report, Making good society, the independent Commission of Inquiry into the Future of Civil Society in the UK and Ireland states that it is impossible to imagine plausible responses to the greatest challenges of our time – including political distrust, economic crisis and climate change – without significant input from civil society.

The Commission articulates the importance of civil society in all spheres of life, and identifies four critical areas in which civil society activity is necessary to make good society. These key themes are set out below:

* Growing a more civil economy
* A rapid and just transition to a low carbon economy
* Democratising media ownership and content
* Growing participatory and deliberative democracy
