Strengthening and giving voice to these values will help to create responses to a wide range of social and environmental challenges – from climate change to social exclusion. Indeed, it is difficult to foresee long-lasting and adequate responses to some of today’s most pressing challenges emerging without working to promote these values.
Common Cause is a network of people working to rebalance cultural values, creating a more equitable, sustainable and democratic society. This work, drawing on extensive collaboration with some of the world’s leading social psychologists, is establishing key principles and insights to achieve this.’
Surefoot and several of our associates are part of this network and we have been applying the Common Cause approach in our work for many years - including designing and delivering the UNESCO awarding Action Learning Programme ‘Communities with a Common Cause”
Surefoot supports learning about, and implementation of, Common Cause principles and practice on the ground in Scotland. We integrate Common Cause principles into much of our work and training, as well as offering workshops specifically on values.
