Join us to welcome team members from the Inclusive Growth Commission to Scotland. This public event will consider the Commission’s emerging findings and debate how Scotland’s economic growth can enable the widest range of people and places to contribute to, and benefit from, economic success.
This event will hear more about the Commission’s work and learn about the evolving Building Inclusive Growth (BIG) Scottish Network, allowing plenty of opportunity for discussion in open forum.
The RSA’s is exploring how to best make local economies across the UK more economically inclusive and prosperous, through a series of seminars, research, case studies, evidence hearings, and a call for evidence.
This event is organised by the Fellow-led Building Inclusive Growth (BIG) Network. The network is interested in a continuing exchange of knowledge, experience, and practice with the Inclusive Growth Commission and others to help create better public policy, private practice, research, prosperity, and wellbeing in Scotland.
The Commission published its emerging findings in October 2016, raising a number of themes including: the roles of smaller cities and towns; citizen participation; social as well as economic devolution; new ways of measuring economic growth; and innovation in funding social and capital projects.
The Commission are interested in barriers to inclusive growth and how this impacts on households, firms and communities; and the extent to which local businesses, civil society organisations, and public sector partners are already trying to tackle these challenges and to what effect; and how local actors could be supported by the Scottish Government and local government.
Join us to discuss. Please book your place by following the 'Register' link at the top of this page.
