Peter Bradley Steps Down as SCT Director

After ten years in the role, SCT’s co-founder Peter Bradley has stepped down as its director. He is succeeded by Bryn Harris who has served as SCT’s new projects director for the past three years.

In his farewell message to SCT’s supporters, Peter wrote:

“I wanted to thank you for your support for the work we do and in many cases for the partnership and collaboration without which many of our projects and initiatives would not have been possible. I’m very proud of what we have achieved together.

“I shall remain involved with SCT. Its mission – to promote, freedom of expression, public debate and active citizenship – is now even more important than it was when we started out a decade ago. We urgently need to restore the humanising and enriching value of face-to-face engagement between citizens. Even more urgently, we have to find a way of fulfilling the internet’s enormous potential as a forum for the kind of civil and constructive debate which underpins the democratic process.

“These are challenges which await our new director, Bryn Harris, who has been SCT’s new projects director for the past three years. He is a person of ideas and energy and ideally qualified to take SCT into its second decade.

“In the meantime, I thank you again for your friendship and support.”
