We've had a facelift!

We're proud to introduce our new, improved website!

We know lots of people love our content and publications so we haven't changed these, but we wanted to make it easier to see all the content we have available on the website and access the content you need.  We hope the latest revamp has achieved this - and made the website more attractive too!  

Please have a look around and let us know what you think - we'd love to hear from you - [email protected].


New - The Life Map

We're pleased to announce the launch of our new tool - The Life Map.

Have you ever wished you could get some perspective on your life? To see the story of your life so far from a different angle – and get some insights to help you improve your life in the future? Or perhaps you have difficulty remembering certain events, people or memories from the past, and you’d love to fill in the gaps?

Bad Ads

We all know that advertising is largely an annoyance in society, right? Encouraging us to want and buy stuff we don’t really need, fuelling overconsumption, manipulating us, making us feel permanently dissatisfied….

So, with this in mind we thought we’d present some of the worst adverts we’ve seen – not necessarily badly made (although some are), but breathtaking in their stupidity, hypocrisy or their obvious attempts to manipulate the public.  Here they are…


Publications list

Now that we've made our resources available to everyone, this seems like a good time to provide a list of the publications we've produced to date!

Important news - read anything you like!

We've got some important - and good - news.  The Life Squared website is now easier than ever to use.  Our content has always been free but up to now we've kept some of it available to registered users only.  But we've now removed the 'registration wall' so that everyone can download everything on the site - even if you aren't signed in.

New booklet - 'How to achieve less'

We're delighted to launch our new booklet this week - called 'How to achieve less'. Click here to download it. We're calling it 'the antidote to self help books'.

Death of Nelson Mandela 9/12

South Africa's first black president and enduring anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela has died at the age of 95. 

The news was announced by the current president, Jacob Zuma last Thursday.  Mandela will be laid to rest at his ancestral village of Qunu in the Eastern Cape on 15 December.  The funeral will follow a week of national mourning, which includes an open-air memorial service at Johannesburg's Soccer City stadium.

Central African Republic crisis 2/12

France and the Congo Republic have deployed reinforcement troops in the Central African Republic (CAR) in a bid to restore order eight months after a rebel takeover. Humanitarian agencies including Amnesty International are calling for a UN peacekeeping mission due to fears the whole region is on the brink of genocide.

Politics and language

Language is a critical tool in politics. Used effectively it can convince, gain power and get results, but when it fails it can have disastrous results.

The simple issues and choices behind many political debates can easily be obscured by politicians and commentators keen to present one side of the story. We've just published a new Life Squared paper that explores the different ways that politicians (in fact, anyone) can present the same situation in order to promote their own viewpoint, or convince you of it.

Behind the Headlines - Kenya Mall Siege
