Sustain Annual Conference

Event date
Event time
2-5pm GMT

Organiser's description (via Sustain)

With high levels of pre-existing poverty and a cost of living crisis driven by war, inflation, rising food prices and political uncertainty, our conference will provide an opportunity to discuss policy solutions.

What are the roles for politicians and government, but also civil society, retailers and the private sector to support people through what is set to be a very difficult winter? And what are the foundations we want to lay now that give us a solid base to build on for the future? We will welcome a cross-sector line up of speakers to explore these questions in detail.   

Come and join us to surface your policy solutions. We hope to see you there!

  • Professor Ha-Joon Chang, Economist and author of ‘Edible Economics- A Hungry Economist Explains the World’
