A Future Beyond Growth

innovation brum entranceSaturday 5th July, 09.30 until 1330 at Innovation Centre Birmingham – Holt Street, Aston Science Park, Birmingham, B7 4BB.

You are invited to this half-day event to explore the policy and practice changes needed for a better (environmentally sustainable and socially just) economy, and how we can make it happen.

UK economic policy needs to serve its different regions, deliver social justice, and operate within environmental limits. In the run up to the 2015 elections, how can we challenge London-centric political debate and set an agenda for achieving this in the West Midlands?

This participatory event organised by Compass WM and Localise WM will bring people together from across party-political lines to explore some coherent policy and practice proposals for meaningful economic change, and to plan how we can help turn them into action:

  • How can more people be included more equally in the economy?
  • How can we shape finance, skills, planning and other levers to support sustainable prosperity?
  • How can we make environmental limits real in economic decisions?

All are welcome – policymakers, community activists, political activists, NGOs, economic development officers – anyone who wants to help to build a better economy in the region.
