I4P Public Event: 30th April 2019

What Makes an Economy Good?

Neil McInroy
CLES – Centre for Local Economic Strategies

This event is the latest in the series of I4P’s ‘What Makes A Good Society?’ sessions which are intended to engage the public, professionals and practitioners as well as academics. Our last public seminar ‘What Makes for Good Childhood Mental Health?’ included contributions from a range of professionals and academics who work with children.

In this latest session, What makes an economy good? Neil McInroy from the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES), will outline how our Global and local economies are going wrong: failing to work within planetary limits and incapable of creating security and prosperity for all. Detailing CLES’s UK and international work on Local Wealth Building he will through case studies, show how this growing movement is making telling difference. In this he will demonstrate how we can all play a role in making an economy which truly delivers economic, social and environmental justice.

This event takes place at Edge Hill University’s Ormskirk Campus.
