Annual lecture

Time: 23 January 2024, 16.00-18.00

Good governance because scarcity is real

We're delighted that Jane Davidson has agreed to deliver our annual lecture and receive the 2023 Good Governance Award in recognition of her dedication to environmental sustainability.

Jane's unwavering commitment to sustainable development led to the Future Generations act in Wales, and the One Planet Standard.

The Award will be presented to Jane by our 2021 Award winner, Sir Michael Marmot, who received the honourin recognition of his extensive work on health inequalities and evidence-based decision making.

The event will be chaired by Anna Barnes, chair of the Seaview Project in Hastings and St Leonard's, which helps marginalised people with addiction problems, mental health issues, ex-and at-risk offenders and rough sleepers achieve personal growth and fulfilment.

We're also delighted to announce that Professor Jaideep Prabhu will be joining the discussion panel at our annual lecture. Jaideep is Professor of Marketing and Jawaharlal Nehru Professor of Indian Business at Judge Business School, University of Cambridge. He teaches business and enterprise at the University of Cambridge’s Judge Business School and directs the Centre for India & Global Business (CIGB).

In 2021, Jaideep delivered our Annual Lecture on the topic of his much-acclaimed book, How should a government be?, exploring how governments can better deliver for their citizens.

He is also the author of Frugal Innovation: How to do More with Less, so we're looking forward to hearing his views on this year's Festival theme: good governance because scarcity is real.

Other speakers will include GGI's chief executive Andrew Corbett-Nolan, and Jaco Marais, GGI's director of corporate communications.

The annual lecture and the award ceremony will take place on 23 January 2024 from 16.00 to 18.00.
