The Engage 2019 Seminar Series is exploring three themes that matter to residents of the waterfront and city centre but also apply right across the Liverpool City Region. 'Playing Our Part - in the priorities of the Liverpool City Region' is the working title for the autumn series and this overarching theme indicates that Engage wants to encourage new thinking and also to bring as many people on board a visionary approach to future plans for the city region as possible.

The topics we will be considering are Cycling and Walking, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping, and Devolution and Governance. The dates are:

SEMINAR ONE: Cycling/Walking – 3rd October Thursday

SEMINAR TWO: Homelessness/Rough Sleeping – 17th October Thursday

SEMINAR THREE: Devolution/Governance – 31st October Thursday

Each seminar will be led by a national or international speaker and then there will be someone from the Liverpool City Region to respond to the address. The seminars will also have a Local Panel of organisations and NGOs that are committed to bringing about change in each of the topic areas. There are so many bodies that we could invite that we are considering setting up a Market Place so as many organisations as want to can have a presence at our seminars.

Guest speakers confirmed are:

  • Klaus Bondham: CEO of Danish Cyclists’ Federation  and former Mayor of Technical and Environmental Affairs in Copenhagen City Council
  • Juha Kahila: Project Coordinator Y-Foundation, Housing First Europe Hub, Finland
  • Prof Philip McCann: Chair in Urban and Regional Economics, Sheffield University Management School

Deputy Portfolio Speakers from the Liverpool City Region confirmed are:

  • Transport & Air Quality: Cllr Nathalie Nicholas (Liverpool)
  • Housing & Spatial Framework: Cllr Patricia Hardy (Sefton)
  • Policy, Reform & Resources: Cllr Carla Thomas (Sefton)

Further details will be released as they become available.
