The death of the high street was a favourite media headline even before the pandemic – and now there's an urgent need for change. One in seven shops stands empty, retail giants like Debenhams have collapsed, and many jobs have been lost.
So what next? How to unleash hyperlocal movements of green, community-powered enterprise? How might we shift entrenched power bases like property and investment to support this?
Rebecca Trevalyan, high streets activist and Library of Things co-founder, will share her experiences in a talk and Q&A.
This event has been organised by the North West committee.
