Money and beyond – how to produce local wealth

Speaker: Matthew Baqueriza-Jackson
Time: Tuesday, 01.02.2021 from 12:30 – 13:30h
Place: Online via Zoom
Language: English

Local wealth means more than economic prosperity in cities. By adding social value to public procurement practices, money recirculates among empowered and collaborative communities, labour opportunities and conditions are improved, and the carbon footprint would be reduced. What strategies could be adopted to reach these outcomes? This workshop will revise key activities, tools and actors for understanding strategic procurement as an opportunity for the generation of local wealth rather than a technical bureaucratic process based mainly on monetary criteria.

Matthew Baqueriza-Jackson is an expert on strategic procurement with more than 12 years of experience in the field. He is currently an independent policy advisor, chair of the Greater Manchester Social Value Network (GMSVN) and representative of URBACT in the EU Urban Agenda Partnership on Responsible and Innovative Public Procurement. He is also a former Deputy Chief Executive of the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES) and helped to devise the Community Wealth Building agenda in the United Kingdom context.
