Event description

Description

Localise West Midlands has been commissioned by the WMCA Inclusive Growth Unit with funding from Cadbury Barrow Trust to bring civil society organisations together to explore the big questions for civil society:

  1. What does inclusive economic growth look like in the West Midlands?
  2. What is blocking it – and what is enabling it?
  3. How will it be delivered?

The answers to these questions will feed into the vision and draft strategy for inclusive growth in the West Midlands, into the burgeoning ‘local industrial strategy’, and into other West Midlands Combined Authority business such as the Forum for Growth conference.

We would like to agree on a vision and recommend a few immediate actions that can demonstrate how civil society can deliver new models of economic growth that will truly transfer the benefit of economic growth to individuals and communities equally across the West Midlands

We will also ensure that a model for ongoing civil society engagement emerges from this work.

We need to do all this by the end of November 2018.

The agenda will be based on responses to the survey which is currently live. If you have not had a chance to complete the survey on behalf of your organisation, please do so as soon as you can. Respond to our online survey here: https://surveyhero.com/c/b15a0a7c. (Once you have completed the first page, you can freely scroll backwards and forwards. Once you have completed the final question the survey will be submitted and you will not be able to use the code again on the same computer). The full set of questions can also be found at: http://localisewestmidlands.org.uk/7738-2/.

You are invited to share your thoughts and/or hold a civil society partner meeting to discuss these issues in Coventry at any time during the day on 29 October. Please book a place via the Eventbrite link and we will be in touch about detailed arrangements and timings. If you have any queries please email rosemary@localisewestmidlands.org.uk.
