In a context of rising social and spatial inequality, slow or non-existent economic growth and net zero carbon transitions, there is growing interest in new approaches to local development. The aim of this seminar is to consider the challenges faced by the devolved institutions in the North of Tyne and the rest of the North East, learn from Wales and their experiences in using the foundational economy approach and working out what it means for the North of Tyne and North East England.
Speakers include Jamie Driscoll, Mayor for the North of Tyne; Professor Kevin Morgan, Cardiff University, an advisor to the Welsh Government; Professor Karel Williams, University of Manchester, the co-author of The Foundational Economy book; Adrian Roper, Chief Executive of Cartrefi Cymru; Professor Jane Robinson, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Engagement and Place at Newcastle University, along with Professor Andy Pike, Professor Danny MacKinnon and Dr Emma Ormerod from CURDS.
