Join us at Growing the New Economy Convention

We’re attending the ‘Growing the New Economy’ on Wednesday 12th February 2020 at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, West Street, Oldham, OL1 1NL.

This national convention will bring together an exciting mix of key decision makers from local authorities, health and other local public institutions, leaders of co-operatives and social enterprises with funders and investors to explore how the social economy can play a much more central role in the economic and community wellbeing of places across the country.

The event will include a mix of plenary sessions and interactive breakout sessions, ending with a clear call to action to move this agenda forward.

Hear from Fusion21's Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, Rachael Atkin who will be exploring the topic 'Social Value as a Driver of Inclusive Growth' at 13:30pm. This session will reflect on two different social value experiences: Fusion21’s support to local authorities to drive social value through planning, and Oldham Council’s recent work to embed social value in its procurement.
