In collaboration with senior policy makers across the Scottish Cities Alliance, the Scottish Cities Knowledge Centre (SCKC) plans to produce an evidence-based set of policy recommendations for publication and high-profile launch early in 2017.
There will be three workshops on distinct topics, each involving short briefing papers and presentations from analysts and stakeholders followed by discussion to identify practical policy solutions. The workshops will include a facilitated discussion to identify policy recommendations, and will result in a short report, authored by SCKC, summarising the key conclusions.
Among the speakers are representatives from the Scottish Government’s Economic Office, the Scottish Council for Development and Industry, SURF – Scotland’s Regeneration Network, The Highland Council, Edinburgh Council and the Scottish Government’s Cities Team. Steering and informing the debate will be economists, urbanists and public policy analysts from the University of Glasgow, University of Coventry, University of Strathclyde, St Andrews University, The Glasgow School of Art and Heriot Watt University.
The three workshops will have the same format and will be held from 13:00 until 16:30 as following:
- Spreading the benefits of growth across and beyond cities – 1st April, Glasgow, The Lighthouse
- Creating inclusive, prosperous places to work – 29th April, Dundee, Malmaison Hotel
- Creating inclusive, prosperous places to live – 27th May, Glasgow, The Lighthouse
The events are free of charge. If you would like to book a place at one, two or all three events or for more information, please contact Dr. Georgiana Varna at:[email protected]
