Get Involved




Peter Dawe is a Cambridge phenomenon. Over the 45 years he has lived in and around Cambridge he has made a massive impact on Cambridge, the country and humanity.

He has founded over 100 projects, of which 50 are still operating in some form and 50 Peter defines as a success.

Peter was the father of Internet as we know it. Taking an academic network and transforming it into a global phenomenon.

Through Resonance he has transformed the not-for-Profit sector, creating a multi-billion Impact investment sector. He promoted Northstowe, the first new town in 2 years, in the face of opposition from planners and politicians.

Peter has built a unique set of tools which enable him to achieve the near impossible, in almost any sector and at any scale. One of these tools is the ability to accept set-backs, to pause, regroup and use the set-back as a learning experience for the next attempt or project.

Peter loves his extended family and enjoys classical music, especially when performed live.

The 12 Labours of SUPERHERO Dawe

Cambridge Growth
Stop all development of offices, labs etc. until the deficit in homes and infrastructure are addressed by seeking judicial review of the planning process with regards to unsustainable plans regarding infrastructure, with particular reference to water supply.

Climate Change
To declare that all fossil fuel use after 1 Jan 2020 will be counted against your fossil fuel ration, once the legislation is enacted. This way everyone is incentivised to stop using fossil fuels immediately, not just when the legislation is enacted.
Rationing is the fairest way to allocate a scarce resource. It worked during other emergencies e.g. WWII.  Taxing merely shifts consumption from those who can’t afford the tax, to those who can!

Social Care
To build care villages within local communities that are self-funding and self-managed, using the pension funds of the clients to pay for the build, and pensions to fund the care.

To develop a “desirable” SolarPod single person electric car and to deploy it ubiquitously across Cambridge and other urban centres.
SolarPods are zero emissions, zero CO2, that increase the capacity of urban roads by a factor of 4. Being personal transport, they take people directly to their destination, and can be parked in gardens and use 1/8th of the space of a car. Costing less than £2,000 each and legal for 14 year olds. They are inclusive and a solution to all of the challenges of urban travel.

Community Transport
To enable communities to provide their own shuttle and commuter bus services through the use of self-drive mini-buses.

To recreate the Mutual movement to enable us to move our savings from banks to institutions that are operated in our interests. A “Cambridge Provident Society” bank would ensure our savings are recycled into the Cambridge economy, supporting Cambridge people and businesses.

Rough Sleeping
To give homeless free access to sleep-pods, that ensure rough sleepers are warm, dry and secure at night, and provide secure and dry storage for their stuff during the day, whilst removing the street “litter” of cardboard boxes and sleeping bags.

To expand the Jubilee project under Elizabeth Way bridge to 40 beds.

Safe Parks
To deploy sharps disposal units where ever needles are found.

To build a wash barrier to protect the Cambridgeshire Fens for at least an additional 50 years.

"Ely International Art Fair"
Set up and make Ely the year round destination for the purchase of pre-loved art, in the same way Hay-on-Wye is for second-hand books.

Taxi sharing
Setup taxi sharing lollipop markers at rail stations and other taxi hubs.

My Mission


It seems that these days politicians have become all too good at talking and not so good at doing.
You only need to take a look around at the current state of affairs to see what all these "words" lead too.... 

My background and actions speak for themselves.

It's time for a doer, not a talker.

Exoshock is a global economic model that plots Food, Water, Energy, Capital and demographic information. The model can be used to both predict the future, and to test how best to respond to critical world events.

Beat the Bear

Beat the Bear is a project to design and implement a model self-sufficient community in a rural location. Eventually this will be home of 1000 people.
