Integrated Britain?

Join us at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) for a panel discussion focusing on integration in an age of diversity. Hear from expert speakers and share your views.


As hosts and newcomers, should we be doing more to integrate different cultures in UK society?

How can we strike a balance between integration that celebrates similarities, while respecting differences, and how can we create 21st Century communities that allow everyone, regardless of background to thrive?

Join us and our expert panel for a lively discussion, part of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)’s 21st Century Challenges discussion series. All welcome.

Speakers:

Professor Ted Cantle CBE - Founder of the Institute of Community Cohesion, the UK’s leading authority on community cohesion and intercultural relations (now the iCoCo Foundation). In 2001 he chaired the independent review of the riots in northern towns and was responsible for the ‘Cantle Report’ which gave birth to the concept of 'community cohesion' and founding of the community cohesion programme.

He was formerly chief executive of Nottingham City Council and chair of the DTI Construction Task Force for local government. Ted was appointed CBE in 2004 and is a Deputy Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire.

He is the author of 'Interculturalism: The New Era of Cohesion and Diversity' and Visiting Professor at the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University.
