Event details

Nottingham Trent University is now into the second year of the implementation of our new strategic plan: Creating the University of the Future. This will see the University strengthen its role as one of the key civic institutions in the City and County through the launch of the Nottingham Civic Exchange.

Based at Nottingham Trent University, and delivered in partnership with the RSA, Nottingham Civic Exchange will become one of the region’s authoritative voices addressing salient policy agendas. In particular, it will explore the implications of new initiatives from a Nottingham perspective, drawing on the expertise of University colleagues, the RSA and its regional Fellows, our civic and commercial partners, community and voluntary groups and, of course, our own students.

As well as presenting the purpose of the Nottingham Civic Exchange, we will be presenting the early findings and next steps of its first major project. This focuses on Ordinary Working Families that are just about managing:

  • how many such families are there in NG postcodes;
  • are they increasing in numbers in recent years; and
  • what are the major issues that impact upon their ability to cope?

Professor Edward Peck, Vice Chancellor of Nottingham Trent University and Matthew Taylor, CEO of the RSA and Chair of the Taylor Review on Modern Employment will open proceedings before there is a panel discussion and Q&A on the challenges faced by Ordinary Working Families.

We will start 5.30 pm.
