Ed Miliband has captured imaginations with his award-winning hit podcast Reasons to be Cheerful, which discovers brilliant people all around the world who are successfully fixing problems, transforming communities and pioneering global movements. From a citizens' assembly in Mongolia to the UK's largest walking and cycling network in Greater Manchester, from flexible working in Finland to the campaign for the first halal Nando's in Cardiff, his book Go Big draws on the most imaginative and ambitious of these ideas to provide a vision for how to remake society. 

*WARNING - Contains genuinely big ideas that may inspire - including Green New Deal - Affordable Housing - Universal Social Inheritance - A Care Economy - Reining in Big Tech - Citizens' Assemblies - Votes At 16 - A Devolution Revolution - Fossil Fuel Divestment - Community Wealth Building and many, many more.

*This performance is live and will be available to watch for three weeks after the broadcast date to accommodate different time zones.
