Digital Connectivity in Cities: The Role of Policy

Connectivity is becoming a more and more important requirement for economic activities and participation in a modern, post-industrial society. But what role should national and local government policy occupy in fostering greater connectivity?

 

The Future of Cities Foresight project recently launched by the Government’s Chief Scientific Officer Sir Mark Walport, is one stimulus among many which highlights the importance of cities for the UK’s future development. But policy decisions over connectivity impact on the existing disparity in economic development between London, the UK’s other core cities and the rural periphery. In which case, what is the right path for policy to encourage long-term economic development?

Ash Colloquium - 5th November, 7:45pm, Clare Hall Meeting Room

The Clare Hall Ash Colloquium lectures are recorded and currently featured on itunes. The next Ash Colloquium is November 5th so mark your calendar.

Clive Sherlock, Reformed psychiatrist with an interest in emotion – East and West.
'What is emotion and how does it affect the body and mind? Western Psychology meets Buddhist insigh'.

In this talk I shall try to answer the question, What is emotion? Emotion theorists struggle to understand and make sense of emotion. Some see emotion as the smoke and deduce the fire: there must be something, but they cannot make out what the fire is.
