Unlocking the Potential of Growth Locally 

The concept of inclusive growth is gaining momentum – but what is ‘inclusive growth’ and why does it matter?

At its core inclusive growth advocates economic growth that benefits everyone - and we will explore how to deliver economic growth whilst improving essential local services, supporting communities and protecting the environment.

This important annual event offers excellent networking opportunities and will give you the opportunity to participate in a collaborative approach to improving life for everyone who lives and works in East Suffolk.  Through a programme of presentations, workshops and seminars delegates will examine how individuals and communities in East Suffolk can connect to, and feel the benefits from, economic growth and explore the links between growth, health and wellbeing, ageing well and supporting sustainable communities.

The programme will reflect the key issues important to the ESP:

  • Our people – healthy and resilient individuals
  • Our environment – maximising natural capital
  • Our places – resilient communities and businesses

Main plenary: Present major goals for the future of East Suffolk and showcase how local organisations are working to get there.
