There is so much about life that humans can’t control. But, what we can do, is design systems which ensure everyone has equal opportunity to live without fear of want for work, home, food and healthcare. Ingredients for living a dignified life.
In our recent live event on the subject, Ellie Chowns, our former GREEN MEP and Herefordshire Green Councillor shared an acronym which sums up perfectly these ingredients we look towards.
C.L.A.N.G.E.R.S: Connect, Learn, (be) Active, Notice things, Give to others, Eat good food, Relax, and Sleep.
For most of us the meaning of life is not accumulating lots of money. Most of us would likely define a good life as one with lots of connection to people and places we love, a sense of meaning and purpose, and of course, underpinned with opportunity – equal opportunity – to make sure we have basic security, not just in the immediate moment, but for the foreseeable future.
