The project

Children born today will reach adulthood around 2040. What will life in the UK be like for them, according to current trajectories? What are the policy options we have now that can influence or change that trajectory for the better?

About the project

UK 2040 Options addresses the defining issues facing the country, from tax and economic growth to health and education.

A range of experts will assess the policy landscape, explore some of the most fertile areas in more depth, test and interrogate ideas and bring fresh angles and insights to the choices that policymakers will need to confront, make and implement.

Who we are

UK Options 2040 is brought together by Nesta and the Behavioural Insights Team, working closely with a range of expert partners. Lord Gus O’Donnell is project sponsor.
