Programme Outline

The Public Policy Projects’ Virtual Hubs at the 2020 Conservative Party Conference brings together influential organisations and decision makers across multiple sectors. At the largest meeting of Conservative MPs, Government Ministers, local government and international governmental delegates in the UK, three virtual “Hubs” provide attendees with opportunities to ask questions and gather a unique insight into some of the key ideas forming the new Government’s policy.

The "Health & Social Care Hub" Sessions in this hub will be informing and empowering decision makers to formulate the health agenda for the decade ahead and asses policy reform that will reduce healthcare inequalities across the UK, support a system of primary and community care whilst making it sustainable for future generations.

The “International Hub” Sessions in this hub will be assessing the global lessons of Covid-19, identifying changes to the global policy landscape and work on sharing ideas from around the world to improve mental health and wellbeing.

The “Infrastructure Hub’’ Sessions in this hub will assess how the Government will level up Britain through delivering new and improved infrastructure, looking particularly at how the state of the economy and infrastructure will change in the post-Covid era.
