2019 Westlakes Public Value Convention

23rd May 2019 - 24th May 2019

UCLan Westlakes Campus, Whitehaven

This two-day colloquium focuses upon results for citizens. Sponsored by the Samuel Lindow Foundation and Sellafield Limited, organised under the auspices of UCLan’s Applied Policy Science Unit, the 2019 Cumbria Public Value Convention comprises a two-day programme of talks with case studies from professionals, policy makers and scholars.

Today in government and commerce, and among citizens and in communities there is an increasing recognition of the importance of public value in policy and programmes. This turn to public value represents the ‘humanisation’ of policy and a concern about wider public benefits beyond economics.

Public value is, essentially, what individuals value in the light of their own and the public’s interest and organisations create value for individuals by responding positively to their basic needs. A public value approach represents a new look at policy and action, and focuses upon the impact of activity upon the daily lives of ordinary citizens and gives us a novel, powerful approach to fostering and framing the value of products, projects and services – beyond financial value.

Thursday 23 May 2019: The public value of infrastructure

Friday 24 May 2019: The public value of the nuclear industry and innovation
