City-REDI, University of Birmingham would like to invite you to the Local Wealth Building Summit 2018.

This event is being held on the 17th July 2018, 11:00 – 15:00 in the Nettlefold Room, The Nicolson Building, Winterbourne House, 58 Edgbaston Park Road, Edgbaston, B15 2RT.

The event is being organised by the Centre for Local Economic Strategies in partnership with Barrow Cadbury Trust and hosted by City-REDI, University of Birmingham.


Local wealth building is no longer an ‘alternative’ but a guiding principle of the new economic model and movement gaining momentum across the UK.

This summit seeks to showcase, inspire and galvanise collaborative action on local wealth building.

Acknowledging the focus on progressive procurement and the role of anchor institutions to date, this event aims to broaden the local wealth building agenda for the UK moving forward.

It will explore pioneering examples from Preston, Birmingham and Manchester, among others while setting out the wider context and scale of what has been achieved elsewhere, and what is possible here.



The event will include presentations and panel discussions from a range of speakers, as well as interactive workshops on topics including:

  • Unlocking the power of procurement
  • Municipal enterprise
  • Inclusive economic strategy
  • Democratising local wealth ownership

View the full programme on the CLES website.


The event is free to attend, however, booking is required as places are limited.

Everyone is welcome. Those seeking to understand and be part of the local wealth building agenda in the UK, and beyond, are particularly encouraged to attend.
