Conference on Community Wealth Building.

It seems that the event on Thursday may be full. I am speaking at a seminar below. 

15.05: Levering local finance

Chair: Councillor Martyn Rawlinson, Preston City Council
Marianne Sensier, University of Manchester (10 mins) 
Councillor John Gray, Newham and Unison NEC (10 mins) 
Catherine Howarth, Share Action (10 mins) 

The focus is on local finance, so will focus on using pension funds and local banks to provide local financing for investment. The overarching theme of the conference is on what Labour can do now – i.e. where we are in power already – to overcome austerity and strengthen local economies
