Lunch & Learn: The Levelling Up Challenge – transforming the tensions between productivity, prosperity and people across the UK
Friday 23rd September, 12pm-12.45pm
The Government’s long-awaited Levelling Up White Paper included a list of 12 national missions and some 49 proposed measures against which progress towards a fairer, more equal nation might be judged. While the published White Paper provided opportunities, it also raised questions for local authorities to create a deliverable strategy for interventions that would improve outcomes for their local communities.
This year’s Excellence in Place Leadership programme focused on the power of metrics to provide insight into creating authentic outcome-based strategies to ‘level up’ their localities. From establishing baseline data to reviewing measurement techniques, and from understanding behavioural change techniques to identifying suitable collaborative partnerships, this ADEPT Lunch and Learn session will share the findings and recommendations to successfully ensure Levelling Up delivers the outcomes we all need.

ADEPT Autumn Conference
Thursday 17th & Friday 18th November
Hilton Hotel, Leeds
ADEPT’s Autumn Conference will build upon our priority themes for this year - people, place and planet. Our focus will be on the key concerns for local government, which need to be seen against the continuing and considerable backdrop of Covid-19, climate change and environmental degradation, and the significant economic and financial challenges globally, nationally and locally.
Our 2022 Conference will look at tackling climate change and its role in levelling up, financial systems in support of place, climate and levelling up, and policy coherence and support for strategic agendas in a series of plenary and workshop sessions.
