Are Cities Leaving Our Towns Behind?

Bringing together senior figures for a substantive discussion on the growing problem of geographic inequality between our towns and cities

Speakers:

The Government has indicated that one of its key priorities will be addressing the growing divide between our towns and cities. But what will it mean in practice to shift our focus from the city to places in general? How might we imagine growth models which focus on the needs of people outside cities? These questions are especially important after the Brexit vote, which drew many London-based observers’ attention to smaller towns and rural areas. What next for the highly centralised UK?
