At this year's The World Transformed, we chatted to Novara Media's Ash Sarkar.

She spoke to us about the coming UK general election and a possible Labour Party agenda of zero carbon by 2030, a four day working week, universal basic services, dismantling the hostile environment and abolishing private schools.

Live discussion: Why is everyone taking the government to court?

There's a pandemic on – so why are openDemocracy, Foxglove and others challenging the British government's health contracts in court? Join us for the inside story on how we're going to extraordinary lengths to force the government to reveal what they're doing with public money and citizens' health records.

Join us for this free event on 4 March at 5pm UK time/12pm EST.

Hear from:

Cori Crider Lawyer, investigator and co-founder of Foxglove, a non-profit that seeks to make the use of technology fair for everyone
