Beyond cities – resilient local economies and communities

November 28, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


This conference draws together practitioners, thinkers and local actors from Wales and across the UK to consider the prospects of places beyond cities, including the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Carnegie UK, the Industrial Communities Alliance, the Institute of Welsh Affairs’ Understanding Welsh Places Project and more.

  • The experience of “left behind” communities and how their needs are addressed
  • Rethinking the relationship between places in Wales
  • How places beyond cities can create and drive inclusive and resilient economies
  • The relationship between City Deal regions and the places within them
