Event Details

The educational background of our parents has a large bearing on our life chances, but often overlooked is the effect of coming from the ‘wrong side of the tracks’.  In Britain, the so-called ‘north-south’ divide means that region or district of birth can also affect prospects for material and subjective well-being.  Some of these geographic differences can be accounted for by differences in population characteristics.  However, a symbiotic relationship exists between ‘population’ and ‘place’ making geography an inescapable component of solutions to poverty and inequality in Britain and elsewhere.

Parking: £2 Pay and Display in Milldam car park (PO1 3AS)
