Subscribe to our newsletter to hear how 21st-century citizens are creating global movements.

Our mission

People all over the world are building movements to create a better future. They work outside traditional institutions and business models, employing new tools and ways of collaborating to make a difference. We call these people New Citizens and believe they should be celebrated.

The New Citizen is an online publication that highlights the emergence of new citizen-led initiatives and provides readers with an insight into how their successes can be replicated.

Who we are

The New Citizen is a global collective of impatient dreamers who realise the future won't fix our problems unless we build it.
