89: Gordon Brown – Seven Ways to Change the World: how to fix the most pressing issues we face

Our new Change Makers collaboration with University of London's School of Advanced Study (SAS) is a landmark series that explores the ways in which COVID-19 has changed us as a society. Here, Michael speaks to former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. His tenure as Prime Minister from 2007 to 2010 followed a decade spent as Chancellor of the Exchequer – the longest-serving holder of the role in modern British history. Described by former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney as a “person of action”, he has been a fierce campaigner throughout his career – whether in office or since, in his passion for maintaining the union and as a UN special envoy on global education. Today he is campaigning for global change with his new book, ‘Seven Ways to Change the World: How to Fix the Most Pressing Issues We Face’. This is the story of someone who has witnessed how great global events happen, with the mission to inspire a fairer, safer and more equal world.
