Salford is at the start of something new. Salford is building an inclusive economy, where businesses, communities and people both contribute to Salford’s success and reap the rewards. There is no doubt that Salford has been increasingly successful in attracting inward investment and development, as a basis to economic growth and social gain. However, despite this great success, we know that this approach, on its own, is unlikely to be enough – wealth does not naturally trickle down.
An inclusive economy in Salford, will be one where wealth not only trickles but flows. This is about economic gains, which occur through the actual functioning of the economy, not just via ‘after-the-fact’ benefits or through the redistribution of any growth. This will be an economy which truly benefits local communities, maximise social return, deepens local enterprise and business and brings fairer wages.
This event is both a celebration of what Salford is doing, but also a rallying call, to do more, that is ambitious, and action focussed.
In this, the city joins a growing range of places, in the UK and internationally, who are building local wealth – making economic and social justice a reality.
Led by Neil McInroy, CLES Chief Executive:
• Hear first hand from international and national representatives leading the way
• Be inspired to build upon what the city has already achieved
• Be a part in a key moment in the development of this new approach for the city
The event is on 14th June 9:30am to 1:00pm
