Ep. 7 - In conversation with Steve ReedConversations about a Collaborative Society with Lord Victor Adebowale
11/12/19 • 37 min
Steve Reed, Labour candidate for Croydon North, Shadow Minister for Children and Families, former leader of Lambeth Council
The architect of the Cooperative Councils movement in Lambeth while council leader, the Labour candidate draws on his family and personal history to explain why he thinks that public service organisations must ‘invert the pyramid’, challenging hierarchy and self-interest (however well-meaning) to empower people and service users. Steve reflects honestly on what he learned from his time at Lambeth, and the signs of hope he sees now across the political spectrum for a rebalancing of power through a new social contract.
*Steve Reed is no longer a Member of Parliament as Parliament has been dissolved until after the General Election. This episode was recorded on the 9th July 2019.
