We have all been let down by our leaders. From politicians to bankers to celebrities, there is an endless stream of criticism of their actions and integrity. Sure some of them deserve it. But our leaders are not all bad people. Indeed many of them are shiny eyed idealists.

So what goes wrong? From the financial crisis, to the climate crisis to the obesity crisis, are our leaders letting us down? Or are our expectations of them too great? Does living in the modern world mean learning to live with crisis?

With your help the Anti Hero Project intends to tackle these questions and find out what kind of leaders we need to tackle the challenges we all face.


The Anti Hero Project is a partnership between the RSA, Guardian Public Leaders and OSCA.
