Inclusive Growth – Inclusive Places?

What is inclusive growth and can it be quantified and modelled to help policymakers make economic development decisions that include social dimensions, and aim to benefit more tiers of society and place, addressing structural and spatial inequalities?

Inclusive and Healthy Mobility

Inclusive and Healthy Mobility – Understanding Trends in Concessionary Travel in the West Midlands

The way we travel on a daily basis is intimately linked to our social experience, lifestyles, health and well-being. In most cases, we do not travel for its own sake; we rather derive the need for travel from the pursuit of activities at a different location. Scaled up to a city or region, everyday mobility can reflect the differential distribution of material and social welfare.

Data, evidence and decentralisation

It’s always good to have an opportunity to get out and find out about all the great work that is happening in cities and beyond.

Scales of urban inequality
