NEWS | Jan 2021 | Virtual conversations and next Summer University

Following a pause in its activities due to the pandemic which resulted in the deferment of the Summer University 2020, the Network is planning a series of virtual conversations on major topical subjects. This began with a virtual conversation with Damian Green MP, Chair of the One Nation Caucus in the House of Commons. This series will culminate at the next Summer University to be held in September 2021 where we will bring together thought leaders of the next generation from politics, business, academia and civil society with some of the most respected decision-makers and thinkers on long-term trends.
