About Demos | Demos is a greenhouse for new ideas which can improve the quality of our lives. As an independent think tank, we aim to create an open resource of knowledge and learning that operates beyond traditional party politics. Demos connects researchers, thinkers and practitioners to an international network of people changing politics. Our ideas regularly inﬂuence government policy, but we also work with companies, NGOs, colleges and professional bodies. Demos knowledge is organised around ﬁve themes, which combine to create new perspectives. The themes are democracy, learning, enterprise, quality of life and global change. But Demos also understands that thinking by itself is not enough. Demos has helped to initiate a number of practical projects which are delivering real social beneﬁt through the redesign of public services. Demos brings together people from a wide range of backgrounds to cross-fertilise ideas and experience. By working with Demos, our partners develop a sharper insight into the way ideas shape society. For Demos, the process is as important as the ﬁnal product.http://www.demos.co.uk
