How a new government can decide things and do things better

About the report

The Power Now Project is a collaboration between Compass and Labour Together, to explore the potential of ‘new power’.

Over the past two years, we have brought together over 100 academics, politicians, tech-specialists, activists, community organisers and front-line workers to explore how people experience ‘power now’, and how it might offer a better way of governing.

From workplaces to public services, from online platforms to statecraft, power is fundamentally shifting and changing. This report explores what opportunities and challenges this presents for a new government.


Compass is a home for those who want to build a Good Society; one where equality, sustainability and democracy are not mere aspirations, but a living reality.

Labour Together is a network for activists from all traditions of the Labour movement to explore new ideas and thinking on the future of the left.
