On Thursday 21st October LGE participants and sponsors came together to share stories of their learning over the past year and how they have had impact on the system challenges they were looking to address. There were some excellent presentations from participants representing organisations across the public sector. and thought provoking reflections on the value of making personal connections, building a shared narrative, and reframing challenges to find new solutions.
The challenges explored by the group included how anchor organisations can support the local green economy, how we can develop a long-term system-wide approach to the problem of rising violence and vulnerability, reducing childhood and family obesity and how we can support the development of a world class skills base in Essex among others.
Following the event, we were delighted to also open the application process to take part in LGE2022. For more information, please visit this link
