Community wealth building panel

Hilton Brighton Metropole: Lancaster (inside the secure zone)

Community wealth building and the challenges facing local economies

This event will present policy and practice insights from a local, regional and national perspective. Our contributors will explore the role of community wealth building in addressing the major challenges facing local economies as we recover from Covid-19.

The chair will open the event with an overview of challenges before introducing the panel, who will speak for five minutes on the economic challenges we face from their own perspective and the work done to date to support recovery. This will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A.
