Creative Regeneration: Innovative Solutions in Hard Times Business School

Thursday 27 October 2011

The event is hosted by the University's Economic Development Resource Centre and speakers will provoke and stimulate debate in an audience from the public, private and third sectors.

This topic is presented by two keynote speakers:

Jess Steele, Director of Innovation at Locality, (UK's leading network for community organisations)

John P Houghton, Principal Consultant, Shared Intelligence

As the UK struggles towards economic growth, its towns, cities and neighbourhoods are grappling with the difficult issues of how to develop and regenerate in times of austerity and change.

Recent approaches and tried and tested methods are not working any more – this free event unpicks this problem and explores innovative, dynamic methods of bottom up economic development and regeneration.

Who can attend:

This event will present innovative thinking and practical solutions that will be of interest to individuals and organisations in the field of local government, economic development, urban regeneration, and community development.

This conference is being held at Hamilton House, which comprises an elegant Georgian building overlooking the Royal Greenwich Park. The building enjoys a quiet location at Park Vista street on the east side of Greenwich Town Centre, close to the National Maritime Museum. Hamilton House is only a short distance away from the University of Greenwich Maritime Campus.

The campus is based on a World Heritage Site on the banks of the river Thames. The university's largest campus is centred on three baroque buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren at the end of the 17th century.
"More breathtaking than the Versailles of Louis XIV" is how The Independent newspaper described it.

The Borough of Greenwich is steeped in history. East meets West on the Meridian Line, which divides the hemispheres and marks longitude zero. The line runs through the courtyard of the 17th century Royal Observatory and indicates the spot from which Greenwich Mean Time is calculated.
