Why Localism is more important than ever.

In a country polarised not only by Left and Right, but also Leave and Remain, few agendas are able to inspire consensus. Localism, however, might be one of them. With the events of the past few months front and centre in the mind, wouldn’t now be a good time to discuss the constitutional reform and the move towards more efficient, effective and inclusive governance? 

Shaping the next steps of this agenda is more important than ever – join Demos and the Effective Governance Initiative at the Conservative Party Conference to discuss if localism were to be the first step in consensus post-Brexit, what should it look like?

Speakers include:

  • Bim Afolami MP
  • Polly Mackenzie – Chief Executive, Demos
  • Nick Tyrone – Chief Executive, Effective Governance Initiative
  • Lord Porter of Spalding


Date: Monday 30th September

Time: 1:00pm – 2:15pm

Venue: Rolls Suite, Midlands Hotel
