Luke Pollard has today launched the third issue of the Plymouth White Papers. This is a collection of essays by people from Plymouth’s business, science, politics, education and culture sectors on issues ranging from youth politics, the environment, urban regeneration, connectivity and women in politics. They’re short essays designed to challenge thinking.
This issue focuses on Recovery, the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our city and what we can do to recover from it.
It features essays from Council Leader Tudor Evans, Destination Plymouth’s Amanda Lumley and Harriet Moore, a student at Plymouth Art College, Steve Hughes from the City Centre Company, Laura Kriefman from the Barbican Theatre and Moo Music’s Lisa Clark, among many others, to give a cross section of our city.
Luke Pollard said:
“This third edition of the Plymouth White Papers looks at the recovery from a number of different angles, all with a strong focus on our city and the amazing work that happens here every day. We have grown accustomed to challenging Ministers for our fair share of funding, but we must not overlook the inspirational people, incredible talent and extraordinary resolve of our city.
“There can be no return to business as usual. The consequences of Brexit, the pressing climate and ecological emergency and the pandemic means the old way of doing things is simply not an option for us.”
