Russell Profit MBE, Chief Executive Officer of Greenwich Inclusion Project and former Head of Peckham Partnership, will be exploring possible options to enable 'marginalised' and socially 'excluded' members of local communities to benefit from the tourism, technology, urbanism and other economic development opportunities available through the process of urban regeneration currently under way in Woolwich. This talk will also seek to engage the expertise and research - particularly nationally and internationally – available at the University of Greenwich in a number of disciplines ranging from cultural policy formulation (including events and festivals) to smart cities, sustainability and place management, to mention but a few. This discussion will be extended to the challenges of delivering positive intervention outcomes to a wider range of social target groups across the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

This seminar is hosted by the Economic Development Resource Centre – EDReC, Faculty of Business.

This conference, hosted by the University of Greenwich, is being held at the Greenwich Campus, Old Royal Naval College.
The campus is based on a World Heritage Site on the banks of the river Thames. The university's largest campus is centered on three baroque buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren at the end of the 17th century.
"More breath-taking 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.
