The Peckham Experiment: An experiment in the living structure of society

Between 1926 and 1950 experimental biologists George Scott-Williamson and Innes Hope Pearce developed what was to became known as the ‘Peckham Experiment’, a pioneering project that set out to make health ‘more contagious than disease’. Built around principles of self-organisation, local empowerment, organic farming and a holistic focus on social connection as fundamental to health, the learning from the Peckham Experiment is as relevant today as it was then.
In a time of climate change, the imminent peak and decline of fossil fuels and with levels of inequality in the UK reaching record levels (with negative impacts for all of us), the need for creative, participatory thinking about whole community well-being has never been more necessary. As the Peckham Experiment showed, healthy, equitable, economically resilient and environmentally thriving communities can be cultivated if we work together to make them happen. 70 years after the purpose-built Pioneer Health Centre opened, the legacy of the Peckham Experiment echoes through community initiatives around Peckham and beyond.
