Building Sustainable Societies Master Class Series

16 March 2011 | 6.30pm to 7.30pm | Seminar
School of Law, The Liberty Building, University of Leeds

The twenty-first century has seen a growth in political, environmental and economic insecurity in the context of global recession, population ageing and climate change. Responding to these threats involves rethinking how we work together, care for ourselves, our families and friends, and live in secure and supportive communities, locally and globally. We need to meet people's needs for work, security, health and social care in the context of diminishing resources and widening inequalities whilst building sustainable societies for the longer term.

In this series of lectures key figures address the theme of building sustainable societies, offering expert knowledge and insight into major challenges facing front line service providers in the context of reduced public sector finances.

The speaker for our first Master Class is Sir Norman Bettison, Chief Constable of West Yorkshire. Sir Norman will offer his reflections on 'The Future of Policing'.
