Join a discussion with the leading thinker and former United Nations Deputy Secretary-General, Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, as we explore the possibility of a new and better politics after the pandemic.

At the heart of Local Trust and the Big Local programme, is a vision of empowered, resilient, dynamic, asset-rich communities making their own decisions on what is best for their area.

This is why we’re excited to be hosting a series of talks with several leading experts and high-profile thinkers on how, after coronavirus, we can build a better economy, society, and planet, with community power as a core element.

Each discussion will also look specifically at the idea of community power and its future role beyond COVID-19.

Our third event is with Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, who is the former United Nations Deputy Secretary-General and Chief of Staff of the UN under Kofi Annan.

At this event, Mark will draw on his decades-long experience working at the highest levels of international diplomacy and politics to explore what happens when citizens want both more local and global governance.

This one-hour long event will see Mark open with some initial remarks, before engaging in a wider dialogue and Q&A session.

It will take place using Zoom and joining details will be emailed to attendees before the event.

You can also join the conversation on Twitter with #BetterFuture.
