CPP Inclusive Growth Conference 2022

A new model for economic growth #IGConf22

22 November 2022
10:00am–4:30pm
The Royal Institution, 21 Albemarle St, London W1S 4BS

We’re delighted that our Inclusive Growth Conference is returning, in person, this year. We’re lining up some brilliant speakers to join us for the day at the Royal Institution, which will be hosted by the BBC’s Martine Croxall. Check out the speakers at last year's conference, and highlights from our last in-person conference in 2019.

The impact of rising prices is being felt more sharply than most of us can remember, pushing down real wages at the fastest rate on record. But stagnant wages, growing inequalities and sluggish productivity growth have been features of our economy for well over a decade. We believe it’s more vital than ever to consider a new model for economic growth.

Join us as we create space to step back and think creatively about how our economy should work, and who it should work for.

Our Inclusive Growth Conference will bring together international, UK, national and local politicians and policy-makers with academics, business, think tank and charity leaders. Combining keynote speeches, panel discussions, debates and networking, we will explore how inclusive economic growth can meet today’s challenges with some of the leading thinkers, practitioners and policy makers from the UK and beyond. Questions we’ll be exploring include:

  • With a host of pressing issues to deal with, is the levelling up agenda the government was elected to deliver in peril? How can we position a plan to drive fair, green growth and deliver jobs in areas that need them most as a key solution to this crisis?
  • How do we create a policy framework that ensures private enterprise and investment is a driver of productivity and inclusive local economic growth?

  • The challenges facing our next Prime Minister couldn’t be clearer, but what is their plan for growth? Labour has pledged to fight the next election on ‘growth, growth, growth’. How will this issue shape the next election and how do we ensure inclusive growth is at the heart of the debate?
  • As Covid and wider health issues continue to impact the workforce, is it time to look at public service reform to drive growth? How can we transform our health, education, skills and childcare policies to maximise participation in the economy and drive prosperity?
  • And amid bleak economic forecasts, how are inspiring local leaders, businesses and communities embracing radical alternatives, and what can we learn from them?
