people changingpolitics
.Our ideas regularly influence governmentpolicy,but we also work with companies,NGOs,colleges and professional bodies.Demos knowledge is organised around five themes,which combine to create new perspectives.Thethemes are democracy,learning,enterprise,qualityof life and global change.But we also understand that thinking by itself is notenough.Demos has helped to initiate a number ofpractical projects which are delivering real socialbenefit through the redesign of public services.For Demos,the process is as important as the finalproduct.We bring together people from a widerange of backgrounds to cross-fertilise ideas andexperience.By working with Demos,our partnershelp us to develop sharper insight into the wayideas shape society.
