Event Information:

Austerity, Brexit, Covid and the war in Ukraine have all left their mark on the UK: inequality is on the rise, living standards are falling, and growth is stagnating. Added to these challenges is another that can no longer be ignored: the global climate crisis.

How can policymakers navigate these challenges and forge a path to economic and social success?

Join our panel of experts to discuss bold policy solutions. They’ll discuss some of the most pressing issues facing the UK today – from inequality to child poverty, investment in public services to achieving net zero – and consider how we can reshape policy to address them.
