EvoNorth Conference

CLES Chief Executive Neil McInroy will be speaking on the People’s Powerhouse Panel at the EvoNorth Conference, taking place on 27th and 28th February.

Organised by the Northern Powerhouse Partner Cognitive Publishing, EvoNorth is an immersive series of lively and engaging Q&As, roundtable discussions, workshops and exhibitions, with plenty of calls to action.

Neil will be highlighting how the Northern Powerhouse needs to devolve and extend power downwards, and across a more plural set of people, communities and sections of northern life. He will suggest that Northern Powerhouse has been relatively week in opening up northern institutions and policy thinking to a wide set of people and communities.

Neil said:

“If the Northern Powerhouse could find new and deeper ways of involving people, it could become a much more powerful and compelling force.”
