Justine Greening and Lisa Stansbie

Left Behind or Right on Track? Why Britain’s Future Success and Levelling up go hand-in-hand

Hay Festival 2023, 

It’s delivered millions of pounds in funding to create jobs, drive growth and instill pride in communities across the UK, but critics of the government’s Levelling Up agenda have said it’s not working. Former cabinet minister and levelling up champion Justine Greening talks to Professor Lisa Stansbie from the University of Worcester, cultural policy expert (and triathlete), about their shared experiences of social mobility, why it’s important to keep driving the agenda forward and where it needs to go next.
