Thinking through community wealth building for local economic growth

arrow down

In recent years, partly boosted by Covid19, local governments have increasingly pursued community wealth building policies to improve local economic performance and achieve other policy objectives.

Can community wealth building lead to increased productivity, wages, or employment locally? What are the potential trade-offs? Are there elements that can make community wealth building more effective?

Join us for an hour-long session sharing findings from our upcoming review of the evidence on the local economic impacts of community wealth building and a discussion of how to think through the possible benefits.

Victoria Sutherland, Head of Evidence at What Works Growth will present our forthcoming evidence review, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
