The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues is pleased to host this public webinar - Civic Virtue, Community and The Common Good.
Chaired by UK Life Peer and Senior Centre Research Fellow, Lord James O’Shaughnessy, this session will welcome Jason Cowley, Editor of the New Statesman, Conservative MP for Penistone and Stocksbridge Miriam Cates and Jon Cruddas Labour MP for Dagenham and Rainham and Author of 'The Dignity of Labour'
Together, the panel will evaluate the status of common good politics in Britain today, considering the barriers posed by an increasingly polarised and intolerant political debate, as well as the signs of hope of communities coming together witnessed over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The speakers will consider how the common good can be promoted in British politics through an emphasis on civic virtues, mutual aid and a positive vision of social justice which places the good of communities and human flourishing at its core.
