According to Nesta (UK Innovation Fund), the idea behind finding and celebrating Britain’s New Radicals was that we should shift the spotlight and celebrate the people who have given birth to great ideas that are actually useful in the world. Every two years, Nesta and Observer, make a list of people shaping the world, often below the radar, whose work may in the future shape our lives.
This year’s list covers topics from refugees to homelessness, food to mental health. According to Nesta, “In a sense it gives us a snapshot of what’s going wrong in our society as well as what is beginning to go right”.
