Event description

Description

The 2019 Bright Blue annual conference is this year entitled Fixing the future. This half-day conference will include a keynote speech by The Rt Hon Damian Hinds MP, Secretary of State for Education.

The Government is currently consumed by Brexit. But Bright Blue remains determined to explore and promote domestic reform. In particular, we believe it is necessary for politicians and policymakers to better support young adults.

The conference will include breakout sessions with leading decision makers and opinion formers, centred around the following key themes affecting young adults: learning, living, thinking, earning, conserving, and relating.
