About this event
How the spending power of institutions can support communities and build a safer future
A strong local economy can boost local incomes, reduce the impact of disrupted global supply chains, and cut climate impacts. How are Devon local authorities and organisations integrating these concerns?
This workshop will include
- Updates from experienced managers from rural and urban local authorities on how they are measuring and leveraging social value with their spending, and cutting their climate impact;
- Implications of the new guidance PPN 06/20. It's now mandatory to consider Social and Environmental Value in public sector spending;
- How the social economy (the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector) can contribute to enhancing jobs and wellbeing in a resilient, inclusive and sustainable post-Covid economy.
Speakers: Rosanna Wilson, Head of Procurement Teignbridge, South Hams and West Devon; Phil Symons, Procurement Governance and Systems Manager Plymouth City Council.
Facilitator: Gill Westcott, Director of New Prosperity Devon, and member of the Devon Net Zero Task Force.
