Opportunities and Urban Poverty

  • 1 Park Crescent, Marylebone, London W1B 1SH
  • 18:00-20:00

Canning House’s Opportunities Series examines, through various lenses, the opportunities and obstacles faced by disadvantaged groups in Latin America. This event will consider the approaches to tackling urban poverty.

This event will compare effective strategies being developed in the UK and Latin America to tackle urban poverty, and discuss scope for more international collaboration to strengthen public policy formulation.

Our expert panel will determine:

What opportunities – for economic security, political & social influence, and personal fulfilment – do low-income urban communities have in 21st century Latin America?

What strategies, policies and regulations are needed to deliver equal opportunities?

How does the UK compare?

How can we collaborate to help one another?


Ticket price includes wine and nibbles.
