Local assets on the high street are essential to people’s conception of place and community. This event will consider the economic value and social importance of local assets to the communities they serve and consider ways to ensure that they are strengthened rather than lost in the wake of the pandemic, particularly for the most vulnerable.
Green jobs will be crucial to levelling up. The question for policy makers now is how to train, upskill and create jobs in green industries. This event will consider how best to unleash a wave of green jobs in the regions that need them most, whilst ensuring we have a skilled workforce in place for the long-term green economy.
This event will consider how best to maintain a competitive financial and professional services sector in the UK. It will be a chance to discuss how the government and private sector can work together to support the recovery from coronavirus, think ambitiously about what a competitive “Global Britain” really means, and the tools to support that ambition.
Please note this event will be held in Room 8, Radisson Blu Edwardian.
Levelling up is the centrepiece of the Government’s domestic agenda, but there is a risk that it could become focused on urban areas and fail to acknowledge the distinct issues faced by rural communities. This event will seek to understand the role of the rural economy in the levelling up agenda.
The Government has praised the UK’s regional cities as engines of growth. This panel will consider what policymakers can do to make UK cities more globally competitive, make best use of their world-leading universities, harness green investment to deliver net zero, and build the infrastructure that connects city and regional opportunities.
Technological innovation has changed almost every aspect of our lives, and many businesses are adopting new ways of working fit for the digital age. This event will consider the UK’s innovation landscape, including AI and big data in professional services, and how this can drive down costs and improve quality for customers.
A private Onward dinner to discuss how transport connectivity can support levelling up. By Invitation only.
