Ben Twist highlighted this document at the Steep Trail event this weekend.Â Common Cause sets out,
â€œto explore the central importance of cultural values in underpinning concern about the issues upon which we each work.
Common Cause: The Case for Working with our Cultural Values makes the case that civil society organisations can find common cause in working to activate and strengthen a set of helpful â€˜intrinsicâ€™ values, while working to diminish the importance of unhelpful â€˜extrinsicâ€™ values. The report highlights some of the ways in which communications, campaigns, and even government policy, inevitably serve to activate and strengthen some values rather than others.â€
