Convention of the North

Thursday, 6 September, 2018 - 09:30 to 16:00
Level 1, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art South Shore Road Gateshead NE8 3BA

The Convention aims to bring together civic leaders and key business and civil society stakeholders from across the north for an inclusive, cross-party, discussion, establishing a 'voice for the north' on key issues.

This is an opportunity to explore the potential of the north to contribute to and drive UK growth and set a shared Northern ambition to work in partnership with Westminster to deliver that potential. The day will focus on a small number of issues which will be key to our future including skills, transport and how we influence the shape of life after Brexit.   

The Convention will make the argument that economic rebalancing is a project for a generation, not a Parliament, and that it requires long term commitment and a flexible approach to devolution and empowerment.
