After the collective trauma for many people I know this week, now is a great opportunity to regroup and look towards wider systemic change through love and kindness. For the world to survive, business as usual isn't even an option. Our legacy is vital and long-lasting, just as the work that Corbyn's Labour has put in has changed the political landscape in ways that were unimaginable only five years ago.

I started this piece before Christmas 2019, and finished it a few days into the new year. It carries a lot of grief – and some hope too...

At face value, there shouldn’t be too many grounds for optimism as we enter a new decade. Australia burns, icecaps are melting, much of the world is suffering from flooding, poverty and inequality. The most right-wing UK government I have known in my lifetime now have a large majority, endorsed and championed by the far-right Britain First movement and Tommy Robinson. Trump looking possible for another term. Facebook’s surveillance capitalism is all pervasive. There is a widespread feeling of directionless as many ask ‘so what, now?’. But scratch a little deeper and there are grounds for optimism. A huge number of people have woken up to the fact that there is a climate emergency that will define our news agenda and politics this decade.

Arriving at the end of an exciting year, with all the shifts we have been experiencing, the election has left many of us floundering. How should we then start planning for not just the new year but the decade that lies ahead.
