Caroline Lucas - Another England

Caroline Lucas wants to reclaim Englishness from right-wing cheerleaders of isolationism and imperial nostalgia. Lucas makes a compelling and passionate case for who we are: outlining the English people’s radical inclusivity, their ancient commitment to the natural world, and their long struggle to win rights for all. She explores an alternative Englishness – one that might teach us about the legacies of Empire, the benefits of migration, and the accelerating climate emergency. In conversation with Melissa Benn, Lucas will offer an Englishness that progressives can embrace to build a fairer future for all.
