‘Without hope, people can’t live.’

Mohammed (poet, waiter – Bangladeshi)

A bit about the project

Hopeswork.org is new (May 2019).

It will become a small window on the work that people are doing all over the world to practise their hope.

I’m working with groups in the UK to explore the practical meaning of hope for their own work, and I’ll be writing about it here and elsewhere.

The project is intended as a supportive response to many people who say they feel a lack of hope for the world.

A bit about me

I’ve been in the peace movement for about 20 years campaigning, writing, and supporting groups working for social change.

My new book, Hope’s work, will be published soon (well, I hope it will).

Some of my other work is listed here.

Any queries? Just get in touch.
