Social Mobility in Future Cities

with Lynsey Hanley, Gavin Kelly and Marvin Rees

One of the major concerns about cities and societies generally is social mobility. There are fears that inequality is growing, that upward mobility is stagnating (even gone into reverse) and that cities are becoming places for the wealthy. Is this the case and, if so, what impact will this have on our cities in the future? Considerable work on social mobility has been done by the Resolution Foundation. Gavin Kelly, founder of the foundation and now chief executive of the Resolution Trust, joins Marvin Rees, director, amongst others, of a leadership programme encouraging social mobility in Bristol, and Lynsey Hanley, commentator and author of Estates: An Intimate History.
