Persistent Poverty in Britain

Via email:

I manage the non-profit public discussion series, 21st Century Challenges, at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in London. We aim to inform and inspire public audiences, helping them to engage with important issues that face society in the coming decades.

I thought I would let you know about next event in the series, as it will be examining the issue of poverty in Britain.

Further details:

As the series is not-for-profit, we have a limited marketing budget for the events. Any help you could provide spread the word to people/networks that you think may be interested that would be most appreciated. The series is on twitter @21cc (

All of our talks are professionally recorded and made freely available on our website to try and help broaden our audiences.
