Cities face an uncertain post Brexit future. In Preston, the anchor institutions have come together to reimagine their social identities through a greater commitment to Preston and the surrounding areas by means of local procurement and an increased sense of social responsibility.
The University of Central Lancashire, in partnership with Preston City Council are supporting the development of a co-operative city through the Preston Co-operative Development Network, opening out new and creative ideas for our future.
Join our panel discussion with Debbie Shannon, Link Psychology Co-op, Julian Manley, Preston Co-op Development Network, Kay Johnson, Preston Larder Co-op, and Andrew Birchall, Secretary of Unite the Union (54 Branch) to explore how we can continue to support the co-operative community here and elsewhere!
