Event description

Description

Join us from 9.30 a.m. on the morning of Wednesday 24 April at One Birdcage Walk for the launch of our latest report: “Prosperous Communities, Productive Places”.

This report, sponsored by West Sussex County Council and modelled on its key economic partner Gatwick Airport, will consider the importance of local economic anchors to the national and local industrial strategies.

Drawing on wider national and international experience, the research identifies the impact local economic anchors have on a place and its population’s prosperity. And it will put forward ideas for how places, businesses and central government can work together to improve this relationship.

The research is focused in six areas:

  • What is a local economic anchor and where do they exist?

  • Local economic anchors and the labour market

  • Local economic anchors and the place

  • Local economic anchors and local institutions

  • Local economic anchors and realigning ‘corporate social responsibility’

  • The role of the state in engendering a more productive relationship between local economic anchors and their wider place

Event information:

Doors will open with copies of the report and refreshments available from 9.00 a.m. The event will commence at 9.30 a.m. and run for one hour.

Speakers will include:

  • David Godfrey, visiting fellow, Localis

  • Cllr Louise Goldsmith, leader, West Sussex County Council

  • Jim Hubbard, head of regional policy, CBI

  • Mark Lever, head of corporate affairs, Gatwick Airport

RSVP:

You can get in touch with our Events Officer, Zayn Qureshi ,
