Ideas Network 2030 [IN2030]

The Ideas Network 2030 was launched in September 2018. The mission is to provide an informal framework for individuals of the centre-right of British politics – along with other stakeholders interested in long-term trends and their effects on our economy, politics and society – to meet, discuss, evaluate and assess their relevance and importance to current politics in the United Kingdom.

The Network, driven by a younger generation of thought leaders, aims to enable insight into global trends likely to impact the UK and its neighbourhood, with a particular focus on geopolitics, migration and demography, digital change, sustainability and trade and economics. It has begun to promote these ideas and innovative thinking about developments, to ensure a constant exchange between the UK and the European Union, allowing both to address these trends in the most effective way possible. This will include proposing possible policy changes where long-term trends are clearly visible, and where they are likely to have significant and sustained impact, in particular for future generations.

The Network is working with local, national and European stakeholders across politics, business, academia and society to drive change and nurture ideas. Its main partners, in addition to the Wilfred Martens Centre for European Studies (WMCES), include the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), and the Conservative European Forum (CEF).
