RealWorth to host social value event with U+I

There are a few tickets remaining for our event on Social Value in the Built Environment which is co-hosted by specialist regeneration developer U+I and Social Value UK.

The event is free to attend and takes place in U+I’s offices in London on 17th May – starting at 6pm.

The purpose of the event is to kick-start a debate on the way development is valued, and then use this momentum to create a forum for those who want to continue the conversation and improve practice across the industry.

The topic of the event is:

Revealing Social Value in the Built Environment: Is Financial Return on Investment a Fit-for-Purpose Method for Valuing Benefit in the 21st Century?

A quartet of practitioners from different backgrounds and disciplines will stimulate the discussion including Richard Upton (Deputy Chief Executive of U+I), Prof. Erik Bichard (Co-founder and Director of RealWorth), Vincent Neate (SVUK Board Member and former Head of Sustainable Services at KPMG) and Jonathan Schifferes (member of the RSA Inclusive Growth Commission team).

We will explore how the ability to place a monetary value on social and environmental change can result in more and better sustainable decisions in the built environment. The approach could have positive implications for organisational decision-making, influencing, supporting propositions, reporting on achievements and applying for funding or planning permission.

This will be a limited admission gathering which will offer plenty of space for contributions and reflection on what the presenters and the guests have to say.
