This autumn, we launch our new annual series of multi-sector conferences, panel debates and interdisciplinary retreats, on the theme of 'Inclusion & Opportunity'.

Debates over Brexit, immigration, religious co-existence and the ‘four nations’ have highlighted an urgent need for more inclusive visions and blueprints for the future of the UK.

This series responds by exploring ways of ensuring that everyone in society has the opportunity to contribute positively to our collective future.

Join us as we examine the roles that different groups and agents can play, regardless of backgrounds or perspectives.

You will find tweets and social media posts relating to the series at #CLinclusion.
