Mission Statement (July 16th, 2007): The London Project for a Participatory Society (LPPS) is a group of activists concerned with inspiring, facilitating, and supporting efforts to develop, share, and promote vision and strategy for attaining radical social change, in the direction of a more participatory and democratic society.

LPPS stands for a post-capitalist economy based on self-management and equality, for democratic and participatory politics, and for the elimination of patriarchy, racism, and all other hierarchies and oppressions.

LPPS seeks to promote experimentation with participatory institutions and discussion of proposals and models of a participatory society, in order to demonstrate that there are alternatives to current race, gender, political, environmental, and other injustices.

LPPS seeks to foster participatory, grassroots social movements, whenever these movements serve to promote political and economic democracy, and/or social and environmental justice.
