London Fairness Commission and Race of the Agenda - An Open Space Event
Sat 21 November 2015, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
'What do we need to do to make London a fairer city?'
London Fairness Commission and Race on the Agenda
Saturday 21st November, 10am to 4pm, Coin Street Centre, 108 Stamford Street, SE1 9NH
The London Fairness Commission has been established to convene the first citywide debate on fairness in 100 years. Chaired by Lord Victor Adebowale, we are an independent group of academics, policy makers, business and third sector leaders with a passion for London. A full list of London Fairness Commissioners can be found here.
Launched in June this year, the Commission has so far asked Londoners to consider how they view fairness, whether London is a fair city, and what should be done to make London fairer. We recently published our Interim Report, reflecting on our findings and setting a series of fairness dilemmas for Londoners.
Organised in partnership with Race on the Agenda, this event will focus on fairness issues relevant to BAME communities in London.
After an introduction from Lord Adebowale, the meeting will be run using a process called ‘Open Space’. Open Space allows everyone at the meeting to raise the issues that matter to them, share and develop ideas and consider recommendations for the future. It will be participative, energetic and focused.
The outcome of this meeting will have a significant influence on the London Fairness Commission's recommendations, which will be published in March.
We hope to see you on the 21st November!
