Event outline

How might the fashion industry show us how to effectively challenge the concept of private greed over public need? Baroness Young of Hornsey will discuss this in her inaugural lecture as Chancellor of the University of Nottingham – Support and solidarity: re-imagining our global world.

Speaking to the University community via Teams on Thursday 15 July, Baroness Young will outline how states are attempting to balance competing interest during a pandemic – constantly needing to consider global versus local need, economic priorities which are weighed against each other, alongside social and health considerations.
