Who are the New Radicals? 

Presented by NESTA and the Observer, the New Radicals list showcases 50 radical thinking individuals and organisations changing the UK for the better.

Why New Radicals?

Released every two years, The New Radicals list is an antidote to the many rankings of the rich, powerful and famous so often presented in the media. It highlights and supports the people working tirelessly to shape our world for the better, and bring them together to learn from each other.

In 2014 Crowdfunder was named a new radical, and we are continuing the support, sparked by NESTA, by helping New Radicals crowdfund, and in do so open them up to new audiences, drive engagement and raise money.
