More in Common is a new international initiative, set up in 2017 to build communities and societies that are stronger, more united and more resilient to the increasing threats of polarization and social division. More in Common's approach is to:
• Develop and deploy positive narratives that tell a new story of ‘us’, celebrating what we all have in common rather than what divides us
• Connect people on a large scale and across lines of difference, through events and campaigns
They are currently running pilot projects in both these areas and look forward to sharing more in the coming months. While they are just getting started, More in Common has already established national hubs in France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States and has published early findings from their first stages of work.
