Community wealth building reception

Holiday Inn: Ashdown 2 (outside the secure zone)

in partnership with The Democracy Collaborative

With contributions from CLES, The Democracy Collaborative and the shadow cabinet, this fringe event will highlight the role that community wealth building is playing, as both a Covid-19 recovery strategy and a mechanism for addressing the climate crisis in Labour seats across the country.

Our speakers will frame the important role of community wealth building in addressing the key challenges of our time, from a national perspective. Attendees will have the opportunity to find out more about what’s happening on the ground during the drinks reception and networking that will follow the opening remarks.
