A country where poverty does not exist

Poverty in the UK is an avoidable, solvable problem – but it’s one we have failed to fix for far too long. As a society we must do better. Former prime minister Gordon Brown will talk about our moral duty not to walk by on the other side when people are in poverty; how we can implement our ethical responsibilities to address rising poverty in our midst; and what might be a way forward. Gordon Brown is the United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education and former prime minister of the United Kingdom.
