About the Lecture

Published in February 2022, the Levelling Up in the United Kingdom white paper sets out a plan of action to spread opportunities more equally across the UK.

In September 2021, RSA Chief Executive Andy Haldane was appointed by the Prime Minister to define and develop the flagship national levelling up strategy – a decade-long moral, social and economic cross-government, cross society programme to spread opportunity and prosperity to all parts of the UK.

In his lecture Andy explored how the Levelling Up in the United Kingdom white paper’s ambitious vision and 12 national levelling up missions can now be made a reality in towns and cities in every part of the UK by 2030.
