About Us
About Us

At Common Cause Foundation we’re a small, passionate team working, amidst a large and growing international network, to strengthen and give voice to the compassionate values that underpin social and environmental concern.

Research, by Common Cause and others, shows most people care deeply about one another and the world around them, valuing things like equality, compassion and kindness. However, a large majority of people underestimate the extent to which their fellow citizens care about these things - and this can hold us back.

Conveying a more authentic understanding of what people typically value has potentially transformative consequences: people who hold truer perspectives of others’ values report deeper connection to their communities, show greater motivation to become civically engaged, are more likely to support action on social or environmental challenges, and have higher wellbeing.

I come from a natural science background, but am compelled by the realisation that we cannot expect proportional or lasting responses to today’s profound social and environment challenges to emerge – unless these responses are rooted in an understanding of people: what matters to people, and what shapes what matters to people...

I’m dedicated to working with organisations I care for. For me, being with Common Cause Foundation is exciting as we seek to work beyond specific sectors and play a part in influencing the structures and stories that impact our collective behaviours, we hope, – for a fairer, flourishing society of people and planet...
