The Jam and Justice Project: Innovative Co-Research to Address Complex Urban Issues

June 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free

Jam and Justice is a research project which aims to create a unique space for social innovation to co-produce, test and learn from new ways of governing cities. ‘Jam’ is about trying to bring together different partners in the city to innovate to address shared problems. ‘Justice’ is about re-connecting with those who have been disenfranchised and excluded from the search for solutions. We are particularly interested in the value and practice of coproduction to address complex urban problems and understanding how we can bring different groups together to achieve fairer and more inclusive outcomes for different groups.

Liz Richardson is a Reader in Politics at the University of Manchester. She is a Trustee for the National Associsation for Neighbourhood Mangement, a national network of practitioners and others interested in strategic locality working.

No RSVP necessary. Seating is first come, first serve.
