The UK’s annual inclusive growth conference returns on 20th October 2021. Hosted by the BBC’s Ritula Shah and broadcast online (12:00-16:30h), we will reflect on how we can – as we emerge out of the pandemic – act now to achieve green, inclusive growth. Following the party conferences, and with a Levelling Up White Paper, COP26, Spending Review and Budget all due, we find ourselves at a crossroads, with key policy developments unfolding at the same time. CPP’s half-day conference will create space to step back and take stock with some of the leading thinkers, practitioners and policy makers from the UK and beyond.

Acting now for green, inclusive growth
In March 2020, Covid-19 took hold in the UK, overshadowing the challenge to ‘get Brexit done’ and creating a huge shift in the political and economic landscape. Governments across the world have had to navigate risk and policy complexity on an unprecedented scale. Domestic priorities have been side-lined, international policy processes postponed, and prolonged uncertainty is here to stay. Meanwhile, climate change doesn’t sleep, and its impacts are becoming ever more real. We now need urgent action to save our climate whilst ensuring the transition to a green economy is just, and one in which as many people as possible can contribute to and benefit from growth. Against this backdrop CPP’s annual conference will discuss what it means to deliver inclusive growth in this new and compounding reality of socioeconomic and environmental challenges.

Key questions will include:
• Is there a consensus on the need to `build back better’ from the global pandemic and what it should mean in practice?
• What have we learned since the start of the pandemic that can reset and reinforce our commitment to green, inclusive growth?
• What are the implications for the shape of capitalism and the role of business?
• How must we rethink the design and delivery of our physical and social infrastructure to increase the productivity and shared prosperity of our communities – particularly those left behind’ in previous decades?
• How should our renewed understanding of the relationship between health and wealth shape the government’s levelling up agenda?
• How can we bolster efforts to level up education, skills and employment prospects for young people, laying the foundations for inclusive grow’ over generations?
• How do we deliver a green industrial revolution while ensuring vulnerable communities are not behind again?
