Now that Christmas is a distant memory, here’s the next magazine looking ahead to the New Year! We look at the biggest issues that will shape 2020…

-Of the hundreds of candidates who took the Future Generations pledge ahead of the election, 66 are now MPs. We’ll be keeping an eye on them to make sure they stick by their promise.
- It’ll be a big year of EU and US politics too. We journey to the heart of Brussels, discovering how the Palamentarium (the EU’s slick visitor centre) is reflecting the shift in European politics. And we ask two street paper vendors from Washington DC to give us a sense of the mood in the capital as the President is impeached.
- Who better to warn us about the future than time travelling Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker? She speaks exclusively to The Big Issue ahead of the new series starting on New Year’s Day.
- Chris Packham writes about why punk spirit could save us from the climate crisis – and Helen Pilcher explains how humans are changing the evolutionary path of other species (especially chickens).

Also inside: Take the Younger Self quiz, royal cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason talks about accessibility to the arts and in a final twist, M Night Shyamalan explains what a creepy doll tells us about the times we’re living in.

A Happy New Year to all!

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
