Fairness on the 83

During 2013, an independent report about fairness and inequality in Sheffield found that average life expectancy falls by 7.5years for men and almost 10 years for women from the south of the city to the north.
The Fairness on the 83 film project traces the 83 bus on its journey across the city, engaging people in discussion about inequality in their city, encouraging debate and exploring what can be done to make Sheffield a fairer, less divided city.

Want utopia? Start with universal basic income and
a 15-hour work week

A great deal has been written in recent years about the perils of automation. With predicted mass unemployment, declining wages, and increasing inequality, clearly we should all be afraid....but UBI is achievable says Rutger Bregman, author of Dutch bestseller Utopia for Realists "from the end of slavery to democracy to equal rights for men and women – was once a utopian fantasy too".

Championing 'Making Sheffield Fairer'

 
The best way to help make Sheffield Fairer is to facilitate change by example, showing people that through the power of small actions, we really can build a fairer and better city.
 
To move Sheffield towards being a fairer city, we want ‘Champions’ - people who will commit to doing a specific action or are already doing great work to help and support others.
 
We are connecting with and searching for projects, initiatives and organisations who are working to Make Sheffield Fairer, so that we can give our Champions one off 'Task' and more regular 'Time' based opportunities that they can get involved with.
 
We also want to hear from all the people already making a difference, sign them up as Champions, showcase what they're doing and start finding ways that we can help them.
 
Anyone who lives, works, studies or does business in Sheffield can become a Fairness Champion, just click here.

Many thanks for your ongoing support and efforts,

Jonny, the OPUS and Our Fair City Teams
