webLFC-Fairer London Event-59

On the 15th March, 12.30 to 2.30 p.m. at the National Theatre, the London Fairness Commission will launch it’s final report, outlining a series of recommendations for building a fairer London.

The London Fairness Commission is the first citywide debate on fairness in over 100 years.  Building on the legacy of Charles Booth’s investigation into levels of poverty and wealth in the 1890s, the Commission set out to develop a notion of fairness that is owned by the people of London.

This independent Commission is chaired by Lord Victor Adebowale, with fifteen expert Commissioners from the world of business, government, civil society and academia. The Commission has spent the last year listening to the views of thousands of Londoners, expert organisations and focus groups of young Londoners and business leaders. These views have provided the grounding for the Commission’s recommendations for making London a fairer city.

 

 

At the event

Sarah Sands, Editor of The London Evening Standard, will chair proceedings and hold an one-to-one ‘conversation’ with each of the mayoral candidates, allowing them to respond to the recommendations of the London Fairness Commission.  Questions will be taken from the floor.
