No child left behind: the 2018 Fred Freeman Lecture

A distinguished panel of speakers will discuss how higher education can change the lives of some of the most disadvantaged children in Merseyside and what we can do as a University, and as a society, to make sure that no child is left behind.

In the 10 years since it was European Capital of Culture, Liverpool has enjoyed an economic, social and cultural revival. While investment can be seen in the city centre and historic waterfront, which welcome millions of tourists every year, areas such as Anfield in the north of the city are being left behind and are still listed amongst the most deprived areas in the country.

At this year’s Fred Freeman lecture, our panel will explore the vital role that education plays in improving the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, the importance of projects such as IntoUniversity North Liverpool, and the wider social benefits that education can bring by driving the regeneration of deprived communities.

Registration required.
