The People’s Recovery: The only way to build back better for a socially and environmentally just recovery

The Foundation is delighted to announce that Roz Foyer, general secretary of the Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC), will be giving the annual lecture this year on: Thursday 7th October. She will outline the demands for a fairer future contained within the STUC’s ‘People’s Recovery’ programme and how a strong and broad movement for these can be built and, in doing so, unite the working class around them.   

The lecture will operate as both physical and online events.

The physical lecture will be staged in the Banqueting Hall at the City Chambers, George Square, Glasgow at 7pm. The online event will be streamed from this.

Roz will deliver the lecture followed by a Q&A session, with proceedings closing at 8.30pm.

Due to COVID restrictions, there will be a reduced maximum capacity of physical places available so please book quickly if you wish to attend in person and avoid disappointment.
