Labour Party Conference Fringe: From State to City

Join us at this open fringe at Labour Conference which will ask - are city leaders the new policy pioneers?

Event starts at 12pm on 24 September 2018 at Tate Studio, Tate Liverpool

As central government is faced with complex Brexit negotiations, those likely to be the most active and successful in delivering domestic policy in the UK are city leaders and mayors. This fringe event will be a chance to discuss how cities – whether led by a metro mayor, city mayor, or council leader – are in the best position to respond to the needs of local residents and business, and take forward effective and impactful policy at the local level.

Set in the context of major changes, from leaving Europe to impending automation, city leaders will showcase the ways they are taking on the opportunities of the future and set out why they are the politicians who will be and should be the leaders of change.

We are delighted to be joined by a fantastic panel of city leaders, including:

  • Cllr Judith Blake, Leader of Leeds
  • Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester
  • Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol
  • Huw Thomas, Leader of Cardiff

Join us at Tate Liverpool from 12pm until 1pm on Monday 24 September.

This event is free to attend, outside the secure zone and no registration is required.
